Reneé H. Moore is a Research Professor in the department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Director of the Biostatistics Scientific Collaboration Center (BSC), and Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging at the Dornsife School of Public Health.

Most recently, Dr. Moore was Associate Professor-Research in the Department of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at the Rollins School of Public Health of Emory University and the Director of the Biostatistics Collaboration Core.

She received a B.S. in mathematics and completed the secondary mathematics education program from Bennett College, and her PhD in Biostatistics from Emory University.

After completing her doctoral degree, Dr. Moore spent six years as an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine, with a primary appointment in the Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology and a secondary appointment in the Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Moore taught physicians, was the lead statistician in the data coordinating center for a multi-site randomized clinical trial of sleep apnea, and was the biostatistician in the Center for Weight and Eating Disorders, joining a group of researchers investigating interventions for the prevention and treatment of obesity in children, adolescents, and adults. Dr. Moore was also an Associate Professor-Teaching in North Carolina State University's Department of Statistics.

Dr. Moore’s research interests are in the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical trials and statistical applications to obesity, sleep apnea, and health disparities. She has a wealth of experience as a biostatistician collaborating with clinicians, public health practitioners, and scientists.

Dr. Moore also dedicates much of her time to training the next generation of collaborative biostatisticians and users of statistics.
