Gareth Alun Morris FRS[5] (born 6 July 1954) is a Professor of Physical Chemistry, in the School of Chemistry at the University of Manchester.[6]


Morris was educated at the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle and Magdalen College, Oxford[1] where he was awarded a DPhil in 1978.[4]


Research in the NMR lab along with Dr Mathias Nilsson involves the development of novel nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy techniques, and their application to problems in chemistry, biochemistry, and medicine.

Awards and honours[edit]

Morris was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2014. His nomination reads:

Morris received the James Shoolery Award 2015 awarded by SMASH (Small molecule NMR conference):
