Ms. Moore graduated in 2010 from the University of Texas with a B.S. in biology. Through the UTeach Program, she earned her teaching certificate in composite sciences, grades 8-12. Laura taught biology and chemistry in high school for a year. Being a teacher helped her to cement the basic concepts of biology and chemistry in her mind, enhance presentation and public speaking skills, develop key management skills, and inspire high school students to not only go to college but major in science related courses. After continuously persuading her students of the need for scientists and engineers, she was motivated herself to earn a higher level of training. She is specifically interested in bioscience research and health policy because she believes that in order to make informed policy decisions you must have a firm understanding of the related field. Her goal is to become a consultant for emerging pharmaceuticals or research technologies. Laura completed her internship at Baylor's National School of Tropical Medicine under Dr. Hotez. She accepted employment at Baylor Children at Risk, Policy department. Laura and her husband moved to Boston in 2014 and she accepted a new position as Research Coordinator at Massachusett's General Hospital in Boston.
