Timothy Dore’s scientific interests lie at the interface of chemistry and biology, creating new technology to study complex biological systems, especially the brain. He began his research training as an undergraduate in the laboratory of Michael Crimmins at the University of North Carolina. After graduate work in synthetic organic chemistry in Paul Wender's laboratory at Stanford University, he completed postdoctoral training in Roger Tsien's laboratory at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the University of California, San Diego. He was a faculty member at the University of Georgia in the United States prior to joining NYUAD in 2012.
