Professor Eric Moses - Centre Director

Professor Eric Moses (MSc, PhD) is a genetic epidemiologist currently appointed as Director, Centre for Genetic Origins of Health and Disease (GOHaD). He has appointments at both Curtin University and The University of Western Australia. Prior to his current appointments he was Head of the Complex Disease Genetics Laboratory at the Texas Biomedical Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas. He has collaborated and published extensively on the genetic dissection of a variety of common complex human traits and conditions using contemporary high-throughput integrative genomics strategies in large population and family-based study designs. This includes whole transcriptome, exome and genome sequencing, which he was responsible for establishing at Texas Biomed and which he has now established within GOHaD.

Eric is also involved in the development of bioinformatics tools for the analysis of large genomic and other ‘omic’ datasets involving supercomputing capabilities in Melbourne and Perth. He sits on the iVEC@UWA Board, the Lotterywest State Biomedical Facility Genomics Management Committee, the Busselton Population Medical Research Institute Board and, since returning to Australia in 2012, has led the Western Australian Melanoma Health Study.
