Dr. Morris is an Associate Professor at Washington University in St. Louis who is interested in a method called ‘direct conversion’: transforming one adult cell type directly into another adult cell type. She is leveraging genomic technologies to map the molecular changes involved in direct conversion and ultimately develop therapies to regenerate the small intestine in gastrointestinal disease. She received her PhD from the University of Cambridge, UK and completed her postdoctoral studies at the University of Cambridge, UK and Boston Children’s Hospital.
