* Required information


Helen Moore
Director of Applied Mathematics at Applied BioMath
Helen Moore is an applied mathematician who works in the biopharma industry. Her original training was in differential geometry, and she worked on this for several years after her PhD. A chance encounter at a gathering for postdocs while she was at Stanford University led to collaboration work that soon become her major focus: mathematical modeling of diseases and therapies. Eleven years after her PhD, she took the leap to continue this work in the biopharma industry. Dr. Moore has worked at Genentech, Certara, Bristol-Myers Squibb, and AstraZeneca. She is currently the Director of Applied Mathematics at a company called Applied BioMath, which provides math modeling support for companies developing therapies for cancer, Alzheimer’s, rheumatoid arthritis, rare diseases, and many other areas of need.
