Thomas Moore

TM Dr. Thomas Moore completed his Bachelor’s studies in Bioengineering at Clemson University (Clemson, SC, USA) with a focus on biomaterials, and
continued in the Department of Bioengineering at Clemson in the Nanomedicine lab of Prof. Frank Alexis. After completing his PhD, he joined the BioNanomaterials group of Profs. Alke Fink and Barbara Rothen-Rutishauser at the Adolphe Merkle Institute (Fribourg, Switzerland) as a postdoctoral researcher in 2014. There he studied the fundamental interactions between nanomaterials with biological systems
(i.e. colloidal stability in complex media, particle-protein interactions, particle-cell interactions under hydrodynamic conditions). In 2018 he was awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie MINDED fellowship to study the application of nanomedicines and bioengineering techniques to improve drug delivery across the blood-brain barrier for the treatment of neurodevelopmental diseases, and joined Prof. Paolo Decuzzi’s Laboratory of Nanotechnology for Precision Medicine at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Genoa, Italy). He is passionate about studying the interface between biological systems and nanomaterials, and developing nanoparticles to solve problems in the fields of nanomedicine, drug delivery and bioengineering.
