The Ambitions of Jorge Moll

Appreciation for the inner workings of the human brain led Jorge Moll to achieve his educations in neuroscience. Jorge Moll graduated from Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. He completed his neurology residence there and went on to achieve several other post doctorates in the same field of expertise. Degreed in Human Physiology at The University of South Paulo in Brazil, he also earned a post-doctorate when he studied at The National Institute of Health. He is accredited to his current research which focuses on an in depth grasp in areas of neural basis of behavior and moral cognition neuroscience.

Apart from primarily being a neuroscientist, Jorge Moll is the founder, director, and coordinator of Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit (CBNU) located at D’Or Institute for Research and Education. D’Or or(IDOR) is a non-profit institution that focuses on scientific and technological progress in the areas of intensive medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, oncology and neurosciences (Impressaocerta). CBNU is widely known with an honorably ranked diagnostics and imaging laboratory. At CBNU, Jorge Moll’s research and discoveries are vital to the successes of new developments and discoveries in neuroscience. His implementations contribute to the developments in the areas of neuroscience and how it it deals with the anatomy, biochemistry, molecular biology and physiology of neurons. Furthermore, his research also lends in depth analysis with focus to social psychology, moral emotions and antisocial behavior through clinical and neuropsychological studies in patients with neuropsychiatric disorders.

Jorge Moll is quoted with stating that his idea to open the neurological research unit stemmed from his dream and passion to cultivate world-class research, education and health care in his home country. He holds true to his fantasy of the 21st century’s accomplishments as new discoveries of gene therapy, regeneration treatments become revolutionary. Some of his prestigious memberships include: The Brazilian Academy of Science, International Neuroethics Society, Organization for Human Brain Mapping and Society for Neuroscience. With his highly esteemed reputation and numerous affiliations and accomplishments, Jorge Moll sets a high bar as he continues to embark on new discoveries and achievements.
