Overview

Stephen's research focus has been in establishing and leading successful bovine genomics programs, most recently a multi-institutional collaboration involving the University of Alberta, Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development and Agriculture and Agrifood Canada.

Professor Stephen Moore is a highly regarded research scientist who prior to his appointment with QAAFI worked for the cattle industry in Alberta, Canada. He has more than 20 years' experience in bovine genomics, including his role as Chair in Bovine Genomics at the University of Alberta since 1999. In his role as CEO Livestock Gentec, University of Alberta, Professor Moore led many successful projects to identify genes that underlie production and quality traits in cattle. The expertise he brings to QAAFI’s Centre for Animal Science reflects the centre’s capacity to embark on research to help Australian and international livestock industries flourish now and into the future. Professor Moore took up his appointment as Director of the Centre For Animal Science at QAAFI in September 2011.
