Dr. Mooney obtained her Bachelor of Science in Bioinformatics from Michigan Technological University, her Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from University of Cincinnati, and her Doctorate in Cell and Molecular Genetics from the Van Andel Research Institute Graduate School. She has been awarded NSF IGERT and GRF grants to pursue computational modeling at multiple biological scales, from animal behavior to molecular simulations.
Dr. Mooney was recently a T32 Postdoctoral Fellow at Duke University in the Program for Genomic Medicine, and joined the ACT-GeM in Chicago in July 2020. Her research focuses on discovering the genetic architecture underpinning rare pediatric disorders and implementing new drug discovery paradigms to offer better treatment options. Dr. Mooney has cultivated a passion for integrating computation and experimentation to improve and extend the lives of children suffering from rare disorders, including pediatric cancers and genetic diseases. When she’s not in the lab, she enjoys reading books and exploring the great outdoors with her son.
