    Personal profile

    Biographical details

    Dr Alexander Morrell is the Manager for the London Metallomics Facility and a post-doctoral research associate within the Centre for Oral, Clinical & Translational Sciences at King’s College London. Dr Morrell graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2015 with a degree in Biomedical Material Science and later a PhD from Aston University. During his PhD he spent a year at the UK’s national synchrotron facility, Diamond Light Source, where he developed strategies to study exogenous biomaterial particles and ions within biological systems. Following his PhD he took a short position at the University of Alberta, Canada to develop novel pipelines for processing synchrotron data.

    Dr Morrell's work in Professor Owen Addison’s lab at King’s College London focuses on characterisation techniques to enhance health-care research. Primarily identifying exogenous metals in patients who have had implant failure and developing methods of simultaneously imaging host tissues and distributions of metallic elements in the body. By adopting multi-modal approaches with correlative analyses, he hopes to tackle complex questions surrounding biomaterials research and human disease.
