His successful career is attributable to the education he received during his formative years. He studied at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and graduated with a medical degree in 1994.
He then underwent further training in Neurology medicine during his residency at the same institution. In 2004, Dr. Jorge Moll gained a PhD in experimental pathophysiology from Sao Paulo University Medical School.
Other than conducting research, Dr. Jorge Moll is an expert on neurology. He is a transparent, open, and skillful neuroscientist who believes that findings from scientific research can only be productive when shared. A typical day for him involves meetings and holding discussions with students, associates, scientists, researchers, and entrepreneurs.
This gives him a chance to collaborate, share information and exchange ideas that lead to further developments in neuroscience.
During a research project, the scientist cannot control the outcomes. The researcher can only hope for the desired results. Dr. Jorge Moll falls victim to this phenomenon.
He has failed severally because the results from his study differ from expectations. Sometimes, the results take longer than necessary to turn out which leads to his inconclusive results.
Whenever he fails, Dr. Jorge Moll varies his approach to the situation. Rather than use the method repeatedly, he questions the strengths and weaknesses of his strategy to find out where and how to make improvements to achieve the desired result.
Jorge Moll is a distinguished member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, International Neuroethics Society, the Organization for Human Brain Mapping, and the Society for Neuroscience.
Additionally, he sits as a member of editorial boards for various periodicals. He also doubles up as a reviewer for many journals that educate readers on neuroscience.
Jorge Moll believes that the current publications and careers in neuroscience limit what can be achieved. He proposes a model that would give room for new, high-risk ideas that provide solutions to current problems in neuroscience.
These ideas should be implemented quickly or discarded. Whenever he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family in Rio de Janiero.
