Paul Morgan initially trained as a radiotherapy physicist at Addenbrooke’s Hospital. He then specialised in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at the University of Nottingham, where he completed his PhD on the topic of Spatial Distortion in MRI with Application to Stereotactic Neurosurgery. His research career developed in the Academic Radiology division at the University of Nottingham for over ten years before moving to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston in the USA, as an Endowed Chair in Imaging Science, as well as the Director of the Center for Advanced Imaging Research (CAIR). His current position is Head of Non-ionising Imaging Physics in Medical Physics & Clinical Engineering at Nottingham University Hospitals, a partner in the Nottingham BRC, where he also holds an Honorary Chair in the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham.
Paul’s interests are focused on the application of advanced MRI techniques to translational research, both clinically oriented and in the field of neurosciences. His current collaborative projects involve multisite clinical trials using MRI, especially focused on assessment of paediatric brain tumours and early diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, characterization of complex plaque in the head and neck, use of advance MR techniques including fMRI, DTI, and GABA spectroscopy to investigate developmental disorders through the Nottingham Childhood Neuroimaging Initiative, and assessment of patients with Multiple Sclerosis using both 3 T and 7 T MRI systems at the Sir Peter Mansfield Imaging Centre at the University of Nottingham.
