Dr Edward Morris studied for his BA in Biochemistry at Cambridge and for his PhD in Biophysics at Kings College, London.
After working as a postdoctoral fellow at Boston Biomedical Research Institute, Boston USA, Kings College London and Imperial College London, he set up his own laboratory in the Faculty of Medicine at Imperial College.
In 2005, he moved to the Division of Structural Biology at The Institute of Cancer Research to set up a new laboratory specialising in structural analysis of protein complexes by electron microscopy-based methods. His research projects at the ICR focused on the structural analysis of protein complexes of the ubiquitin-proteasome system, which is involved in cellular regulation.
Dr Morris retired in October 2020.
