Ann Moser, Biochemist and Educator at the Kennedy Krieger Institute, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Scientists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in biochemistry and genetics education.
Amassing nearly six decades of professional experience, Ms. Moser is a respected biochemist and educator who currently works as an associate professor in neurology within the department of neurogenetics of the Kennedy Krieger Institute at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, a role she has maintained since 2017. Prior to this appointment, she served the Kennedy Krieger Institute in several capacities, including as a research associate in neurology, assistant in neurology, and senior technician between 1976 and 2017. Previously, she was a senior technician in the Eunice Kennedy Shriver Center at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, a biochemistry technician in the Neurochemistry Laboratory at Massachusetts General Hospital, a biochemistry technician in the Biochemical Research Laboratory at McLean Hospital, and a technician at Harvard University.
A frequent lecturer and presenter in her field, Ms. Moser was the former session chair of the Leukodystrophy Symposium with the Child Neurology Society in 2017. Most impressively, she has contributed more than 200 articles to professional journals and more than 25 chapters to books. A peer reviewer of E Bio Medicine, Molecular Genetics and Metabolism, and the International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, among many others, she was the co-author of “The Metabolic Basis of Inherited Disease, Techniques in Diagnostic Human Biochemical Genetics” in 1991.
To remain aware of changes within the industry, Ms. Moser served as the vice chairman of the medical and scientific advisory board of the United Leukodystrophy Foundation from 2007 to 2017, and as a member of ALD Connect and Hunter’s Hope in 2014 and 2015, respectively. In recognition of her exceptional contributions to neurogenetics and education, she was granted the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Kennedy Krieger Institute in 2017, as well as the Biomarker Award and ALD Community Award from ALD Connect in 2014 and 2015, respectively. She has further been a grantee of a plethora of branches of the National Institutes of Health and Brian’s Hope Foundation. However, she is perhaps most renowned for her involvement in the Secretary of Human Health advisory board, which nominated adrenoleukodystrophy to be added to the newborn screening panels nationwide.
