Regents' Professor: Thomas A. Moore

Posted: Feb 23, 2011 | 4 min 9 sec

Regents' Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Thomas A. Moore’s international leadership and vision have influenced the development of artificial photosynthesis and bioenergy as a pathway for developing the fundamental knowledge upon which practical new technologies for harvesting solar energy could be based. He has become a senior ambassador of science, lecturing on the science and causes of global warming and providing assessments of ways to reverse deleterious trends.

"Biodiversity is perhaps the earth system that's most threatened by human activity and photosynthesis is of course at the heart of biodiversity," Moore says. "Photosynthesis essentially drives all forms of life on the planet. So being able to work in photosynthesis and be at the engine room of the planet is a good place to be."
