Kenneth H. Moberg, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Cell Biology at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Moberg is a member of the Cell and Molecular Biology Research Program at Winship Cancer Institute.


Dr. Moberg earned his PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He completed his postdoctoral training at Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center.


Dr. Moberg's laboratory uses the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster to model fundamental aspects of metazoan development and disease, with a main focus on cancer cell biology and an emerging interest in development of the central nervous system. His lab team study (i) the roles of conserved growth regulatory proteins Archipelago/Fbw7, Crumbs/Crb3 and Taiman/AIB1 in the growth, morphogenesis, and motility of epithelial cells and (ii) the neurological role of the conserved poly(A) RNA binding protein dNab2/ZC3H14, which is mutated in a heritable form of autosomal recessive intellectual disability in humans.
