Morgan Alexander is Professor of Biomedical Surfaces at the School of Pharmacy, University of Nottingham and a Royal Society-Wolfson Research Merit Award holder. He received his Bachelor of Science in Materials in 1988 and his PhD from the same department at The University of Sheffield in 1992. He leads the Laboratory of Biophysics and Surface Analysis (LBSA) which consists of 11 independent academics with complementary expertise in solving fundamental and applied biomolecular, biomaterial and (bio)formulation problems.

His work involves developing materials for application in biological environments and characterising relationships between the surface and biological response. Understanding these relationships is critical in the development of biomaterials and is the theme running through his group’s work across a variety of biomedical application areas spanning bacterial adhesion to controlling stem cell response
