Jorge Moll and the Future of Neuroscience

As a young man growing up in Brazil, Jorge Moll was already developing a desire to help people. From the spark of that desire, the flames of passion arose and ultimately culminated in his becoming the neuroscientist he is today. His dreams of bringing his home country of Brazil to the forefront of this vital medical science are becoming more of a reality everyday.

Jorge attended the Federal University of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil where he attained his MD in Neuroscience and completed his residency there as well. The now Doctor Jorge Moll went on to complete his PHD in Experimental Pathophysiology at Sao Paulo University ( Using his knowledge and experience as a springboard, he then founded D’Or Institute of Research and Education (IDOR) where he serves as President and Director. Jorge is also Director of The Cognative and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit and Neuroinfomatics Workgroup, a highly ranked diagnostics and imaging laboratory.

Dr. Moll now lives in Rio De Janeiro with his family. His days are busy from meetings with various students, fellow scientists and entrepreneurs representing many organizations. This is all part of his twofold mission to not only bring Brazil to the forefront of the science, but to bring the science into the future. He has particular interests in Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Systems. He believes the possibilities of machine and brain interface along with advances in regenerative medicine and gene therapy could have a definitive impact in being able to assist people with devastating neurological injury and or illness.

Known for being transparent and open Dr. Jorge Moll fosters an environment in which ideas can freely be discussed back and forth. In this way, he and his colleagues can find the ideas that are actionable and can be collaborated on. Thus, they can tackle some of the bigger issues from which certain parts of academia, and the industry itself, tends to shy away.
