Prof Philip Moore

Prof Philip Keith Moore has taken on the role of Executive Director of the NUS Graduate School for Integrative Sciences and Engineering (NGS).

Prof Moore first joined NUS in 2003. He was Head of the Department of Pharmacology for almost five years and for the last two years of that period, he was additionally Vice Dean of Research at NUS' Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine. After spending a few years back in the United Kingdom where he headed the Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at King's College, Prof Moore re-joined NUS in 2010 as a Research Director in the Office of the Deputy President (Research and Technology) with concurrent professorial appointments in the Departments of Pharmacology and Pharmacy.

An internationally- renowned pharmacologist, Prof Moore has published over 150 papers in leading journals and is a highly cited author. He has extensive experience in graduate education in both the UK and Singapore, having guided many students to their PhD degree, which remains one of his fondest achievements.

Prof Moore succeeds Prof Li Baowen, who had led NGS for almost three years and stepped down from the role to dedicate himself fully to his research. Prof Li is a world-leading physicist well-regarded for his pioneering work in phononics and thermoelectrics. NUS is grateful to Prof Li, who has returned to his academic pursuits at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, for his significant leadership, contributions and guidance over the years to NGS.
