Dr. Moser works as an independent consultant following retirement from the US Environmental Protection Agency (Research Triangle Park, NC) where she was a senior neurotoxicologist in the Office of Research and Development since 1983. Her research involved developmental and adult assessments of behavioral, neurochemical, and neuroreceptor function. She focused on evaluating neurotoxicity of pesticide mixtures, unique susceptibilities of the young to pesticides, and mechanisms of a variety of neurotoxic environmental chemicals. In addition to her research program, she interacted with the US EPA Offices of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention, Air and Radiation, and Water in reviews of data submissions and chemical evaluations, and writing human health summaries for regulatory actions. For these contributions she received a number of US EPA awards, including Gold and Bronze Medals, Outstanding Technical Support for US EPA Program Offices, and the Scientific Achievement Award for Human Health Research.
