Dr. Thomas Moore is Emeritus Professor of Medicine and Endocrinology at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine. He was the former Associate Provost and Executive Director of the Office of Human Research Affairs for the Boston University Medical Campus.
Dr. Moore's research has been focused on the hormonal control of blood pressure in normal and hypertensive subjects, especially the renin-angiotensin system. He was involved in some of the early studies of converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor antagonists. He has also focused on the interaction between dietary factors and blood pressure, including salt as well as other minerals and nutrients. He was the chairman of the steering committee of the DASH trial which first described what is now known as the DASH Diet. The DASH diet is a well-balanced diet that has been shown to lower blood pressure, reduce the frequency of heart attacks and strokes, reduce the development of diabetes, and other health benefits. The DASH diet is recommended in high blood pressure guidelines in the US and other countries.
