Congratulations to Dr. Terry Moore!


Congratulations to Dr. Terry Moore! 


Moore was this year’s inaugural recipient of the CARRA Outstanding Service Award! We are so grateful to him for his service and dedication to CARRA’s mission and vision. Dr. Moore has been an integral part of our grants program, leading the Scientific Review Committee (SRC) with excellent leadership, vision and mentorship. ​

“Over the past three years Dr. Moore has stewarded the CARRA grant review committee, acting tirelessly to help grow and train the professional, parent and lay community into a reputable peer review research panel. His attention not only to the scientific review of grants, but his attention to helping train those reviewing the grants, done in a supportive manner is outstanding.” — Nora G. Singer, M.D. (Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine)

This award seeks to recognize an individual that has made meaningful contributions to the organization and consistently demonstrates a high degree of excellence in teamwork and collaboration. Nominees demonstrate generosity and willingness to assist others in the CARRA community. It is our pleasure to recognize Dr. Moore as exemplifying this spirit.

“I have worked closely with Dr. Moore over the past 3 years. In this capacity I have had extensive discussions with Dr. Moore regarding the SRC’s grant reviews and recommendations for funding. Prior to these meetings I had not met Dr. Moore but I distinctly remember after our initial meeting thinking that CARRA was extremely fortunate to have him serving in the SRC role. His passion for research and his desire to see investigators have success in advancing knowledge in our field is evident in every discussion we have had.” — Aimee Hersh, MD (University of Utah) 

A true mentor, Dr. Moore has helped develop many early investigators and guided them throughout their research projects. He also makes sure to educate the entire SRC on proper review processes and research expectations. 

The SRC is in charge of reviewing all grant applications and choosing which ones to approve for funding. Under his leadership, the SRC has awarded more than $3 million in funding to CARRA researchers. Dr. Moore has overseen the review of 157 grant applications during his tenure as the SRC Chair. 

“Dr. Moore’s expertise and skill in chairing the SRC deserves special recognition. Dr. Moore provides outstanding leadership with an emphasis on fairness, timeliness, and rigor. He works tirelessly to ensure that CARRA intramural grant applications are reviewed in a timely manner and that qualified, unbiased reviewers are assigned to appropriate proposals.” — Kaveh Ardalan, MD, MS (Duke University School of Medicine) 

Nominated by his peers and colleagues, all of whom state Dr. Moore’s steadfast dedication, responsiveness and passion for research, we are extremely proud to have him serve such an important role to the organization. We are happy to be able to recognize all that he does, not only for CARRA, but for the wider pediatric rheumatology community. 

Please join us in congratulating Dr. Moore!
