New Division Manager: Justin Moore

Please join us in welcoming Dr. Justin Moore to the Division of Experimental Medicine team where he began as the Division Manager yesterday, Monday, March 18th. Justin grew up in North Carolina and moved to San Francisco 7 years by way of Orlando, Florida. He attended the University of Central Florida, graduating with a B.S. in Elementary Education. After teaching elementary school for several years he completed his M.S. in Education Leadership & Policy at Florida State University. Some years later, Justin graduated from the University of San Francisco with his Doctor of Education (EdD) in Organization & Leadership. His passion for social justice, equity, and the LGBTQ community led him to launch his research into the organization and social factors that impact the persistence of LGBTQ people into high-level leadership roles. Justin’s background in professional development and teaching in public and private K-12 and higher education has taken him from a 3rd grade teacher to an instructor at the university level. Additionally, he has spent several years in K-12 and higher education administration, leading the operations and services for students, staff, and faculty. Most recently, Justin has served as the Staff and Faculty Experience Specialist in the UCSF Department of Medicine – supporting the developing, experience, and recognition of staff and faculty at UCSF Health, SFVA, and ZSFG.

In his time outside the office, Justin loves to shop through garden centers for new house plants, roam through the city parks and trails with Chi, his partner, and Beaux, his dog. He is proud to call San Francisco home and loves to host out-of-town guests so he can show them his favorite neighborhoods, local eateries and bars, shops, and local artist studios (in particular 3 Fish Studios).

Justin is excited to join the Division of Experimental Medicine and ZSFG in order to further the mission of serving under-resourced populations and strengthening community and seeking to diagnose, prevent, and treat chronic infectious diseases of global importance.

Justin is a people person and loves to make connections! He is often described as having never met a stranger. Please reach out to Justin and wish him a warm welcome to the Division of Experimental Medicine at ZSFG!
