Lynn L. Moore, DSc

Associate Professor, Medicine

801 Massachusetts Ave Crosstown Center


I am an epidemiologist with a specific focus on nutritional epidemiology. Much of my research has been in the following areas: cardiometabolic disorders, cardiovascular diseased, cancer, and the causes and consequences of obesity. I am particularly interested in nutrition and its related metabolic consequences across the lifespan. I have been teaching, training, and mentoring others for many years. I am the Director of the Nutrition and Metabolism graduate programs (MS and PhD) at the B.U. School of Medicine.
