Sarah J. Moore

Sarah Moore teaches introductory engineering courses and electives at the intersection of engineering and biology.

Moore's research focuses on biomolecular engineering, primarily engineering proteins for applications in diagnosing and treating human disease. It has included engineering stable peptides and proteins for use in cancer imaging and therapy.

In 2006, Moore graduated from Princeton University with a bachelor of science in engineering from the Department of Chemical Engineering. In 2008, she received her master of science in bioengineering from Stanford University, a department jointly housed in the School of Engineering and the School of Medicine. Moore continued her education at Stanford and in 2012 completed her doctoral degree in bioengineering.

Moore has a strong background in teaching and mentoring, with experience in laboratory-based teaching, lecture- and discussion-based teaching, and experiential education. As a doctoral candidate, Moore taught courses in biomolecular engineering and mentored students in experimental research. She also coordinated and developed curriculum for an outdoor education and leadership program.

Moore enjoys spending time outside whenever possible, including running, cycling, backpacking and rock climbing.
