Joseph Moran

Back to all teachers

Organic chemistry, catalysis, prebiotic chemistry, metabolism

Joseph Moran completed a B.Sc. in chemistry in 2004 and a Ph.D. in synthetic organic chemistry in 2009, both at the University of Ottawa. In 2010, he moved to the University of Texas at Austin for postdoctoral work. In 2012, he joined the Institute of Supramolecular Science and Engineering (ISIS) at the University of Strasbourg as an assistant professor and was promoted to full professor in 2018. In 2024, he returns to the University of Ottawa as a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair. Prof. Moran’s research aims to understand how life began, using the lens of biological metabolism as a guide. His group is also interested in developing new conceptual approaches to catalyzing organic reactions, such as the use of virtual light-matter interactions. Prof. Moran is a two-time grantee of the European Research Council (ERC). He has received the C&EN Talented 12 award (2018), a junior chair from the Institut Universitaire de France (2021), and the Leibig Lectureship of the German Chemical Society (2022).
