Charleen Moore, Ph.D.

Dr. Charleen Moore’s research activities have centered on characterizing human cytogenetic abnormalities and carrying out comparative cytogenetics studies in primates and marsupials. These have involved studies in several primate species, including the baboon and macaque, in which she has described analogous chromosomal rearrangements to human cytogenetic abnormalities.  Recent cytogenetic studies have been related to the development of spontaneous tumors, to environmental conditions, fetal loss, and fibrous dysplasia.
