Charleen M. Moore, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Cellular and Structural Biology, was named a 2013 Piper Professor by the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation.

Dr. Moore is the 13th Health Science Center professor to receive this award. "I am still teaching after 40 years because of my opportunities to introduce students to the wonders of the human body, the human genome and the history of medicine," Dr. Moore said.
