Jeffery H. Moran, PhD

Assistant Professor (Adjunct)


2001 – Ph.D. (Toxicology/Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology), UAMS
1996 – BS, ACS  (Chemistry, Department of Physical Sciences), Arkansas Tech University

Research Interest

Dr. Moran received his doctorate in Toxicology from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in 2001
and an American Chemical Society (ACS) approved Bachelor of Science degree in 1996 from Arkansas Tech University .
Dr. Moran relies on educational and research experiences as well as consulting experiences in the areas of toxicology,
risk assessment, industrial hygiene, and emergency response to manage the environmental chemistry and chemical terrorism
laboratories. Dr. Moran is an active member of the ACS, Society of Toxicology (SOT), and Association of Public Health
Laboratories (APHL). He has chaired the Central Arkansas Section of the ACS and continues to serves as a chemical
terrorism resource for the SOT and on the Environmental Health Committee of the APHL. Currently he is an Assistant
Professor in Environmental and Occupational Health, College of Public Health at UAMS. His research interests include
defining mechanisms of cellular death and identifying sensitive biomarkers during chemical terrorism events.
