Michael Moore's Biography



Michael Moore, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering; Co-founder and CSO, AxoSim Technologies

Michael J. Moore is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering and director of the Neural Microengineering Laboratory at Tulane University, and he is co-founder and CSO of AxoSim Technologies. His research is focused on the development of advanced tissue models of the nervous system for studying axon guidance modeling neurological disorders. Prior to joining the faculty at Tulane, Dr. Moore received his BS in Biological Systems Engineering from the University of Nebraska (1999), and his PhD in biomedical engineering from the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine (2005), where he developed a biodegradable spinal cord implant. He then went on to conduct postdoctoral research in drug delivery for retinal neuroprotection with Robert Langer at MIT. Dr. Moore joined the Tulane Biomedical Engineering faculty in 2007, and in 2014, Dr. Moore co-founded AxoSim, a start-up company commercializing microphysiological models of the nervous system for drug development. He lives with his wife Lisa and their three children in New Orleans.
