Dr Christopher Morris
Lecturer in Molecular Pharmaceutics
Chris graduated with an MPharm degree (First Class Honours) from Cardiff University in 2002. He then undertook PhD studies in which he investigated the mechanistic aspects of macromolecule uptake and transport across the lung epithelium. In 2007 Chris assumed a post-doctoral position on the EPSRC-funded Nanomedicine Platform Grant (Departments of Chemistry & Pharmacy, Cardiff University) where he led a small inter-disciplinary research group looking at the design and synthesis of novel nanomedicines for enhanced pulmonary macromolecule delivery. Subsequently, Chris worked with scientists from the Defence & Science Technology Laboratory (Porton Down, UK) on a collaborative project that investigated the bioavailability of antimicrobial peptides following delivery into the intact lung. In September 2010 Chris joined UEA as a Lecturer in Drug Delivery and Pharmaceutics.
