Dr. Sherita L. Moses joined Georgia Gwinnett College in fall of 2019, coming from the physics department at Loyola University Chicago. She received her Doctor of Philosophy degree in Applied Physics from Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University; Master of Science degree in Atmospheric Chemistry from the University of Alabama in Huntsville; Master of Science degree in Management/Administration, and Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Technology from Andrews University.
Her focused areas of interest include biophysics, nanobiophotonics, and metal nanoparticles. Her research that was awarded a U. S. Patent in October of 2017, involved a compound of gold nanoparticles and plant extracts created to cause cytotoxicity in triple negative breast cancer, without harming healthy cells. She is a published scientist in peer-reviewed journals, and a veteran of the United States Marine Corps.
Dr. Moses loves spending free time with her daughter, an expert in the field of Education, listening to music, and traveling.

• Founded the Moses Institute of STEM Studies (February 2012)
Project Summary Mission – The Moses Institute of STEM Studies (MISS) will be a preparatory school to intellectually prepare high performing, low-to-median income, underrepresented students to enroll in colleges/universities majoring in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. This will provide students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to increase high school graduation rates, college retention and graduation rates, and ultimately affect the future employment outlook with an increased number of underrepresented candidates educated in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics
