Victoria Del Gaizo Moore, associate professor of chemistry, was appointed to the Education and Professional Development committee for the American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) in September.
ASBMB is the major professional society for scientists in the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology. The society, which publishes the premier journal The Journal of Biological Chemistry and hosts a yearly national conference, is the accreditation body for undergraduate degrees across the country. The society's membership includes many Nobel Prize laureates such as the 2017 prize winners in medicine and physiology.
The Education and Professional Development (EPD) committee is a select group of educators and stakeholders appointed to oversee activities such as the accreditation program, yearly undergraduate national exam, national student chapters and professional workshops for the society.
Moore has been an ASBMB Education Fellow since 2014, serving on the national exam committee and associated subcommittees since its inception and organizing an exam writing workshop in Tampa, Florida in July. Her appointment to the EPD committee is a select honor, recognizing her contributions to undergraduate education in the field of biochemistry.
She will serve a three-year term and have the opportunity to help shape and guide the direction of undergraduate education for the society.
