Mary Ann Moran
Mary Ann Moran is a Distinguished Professor in the Department of Marine Sciences at the University of Georgia. She earned graduate degrees at Cornell University and the University of Georgia. Moran's research program focuses on the genetic basis of bacterial sulfur and carbon cycling in the ocean, with the goal of understanding the role of marine bacteria in the productivity of the coastal ocean and the formation and flux of climatically active gases. Her research uses molecular microbial ecology and ecological genomics approaches to explore bacterial processes and their regulation in seawater. Moran is a fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and a recipient of the American Society for Microbiology’s D.C. White Research and Mentoring Award. Mary Ann has contributed to ASM by serving as a member of the Committee on Elections and the D. C. White Award Committee, on the editorial boards of Applied and Environmental Microbiology and mBio, and as Chair of Division N.
