Dr. Moreno-Uribe joined the College of Dentistry in 2008 as an assistant professor in both the Department of Orthodontics and the Dows Institute for Dental Research.
Dr. Moreno-Uribe's research interest focuses on performing a genome-wide search for genes that affect growth of the human face using whole genome association methods and the latest technology for facial imaging. She wants to identify genotype-phenotype correlations that contribute to the development of an individual's maxillo-mandibular complex. This knowledge will likely result in development of an individual's maxillo-mandibular complex. This knowledge will also likely result in the development of novel orthodontic and maxillofacial therapies that will benefit our patients.
