Biography

Dr. Moore was born and raised in Venice, Florida — the unofficial “Shark's Tooth Capital of the World.” He attended Asbury University for undergrad, UVA for a master’s degree in epidemiology and Johns Hopkins for medical school. He then completed a residency in pediatrics and fellowship in gastroenterology and nutrition, both at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital.

A subspecialist in pediatric gastroenterology, Dr. Moore diagnoses and treats digestive diseases in children. In addition to his clinical work, he is a principal investigator on several National Institutes of Health and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation awards at the intersection of enteric microbes, gut health and nutrition. He joined the Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology and Nutrition at UVA as director of research in 2016. 

Dr. Moore and his wife have three school-aged children. They enjoy good food, the great outdoors, the arts and travel.
