Erin Moore is pursuing a doctorate in Computer Engineering at WVU where she has been awarded a WV EPSCoR Cancer, Energy and Security Nanotechnology Fellowship for the year of 2012. Her research uses Data Mining to find patterns in biological data. Specifically, she is predicting a special type of DNA sequences called Aptamers. These molecules can be used for targeted pharmaceutical therapies and in sensors to detect the presence of chemical substances at a very low concentration. She would like to continue developing Artificial Intelligence algorithms to further medical diagnostics and pharmaceutical development technologies.
