Michael Morrison is Researcher in Sociology with the Centre for Health, Law and Emerging Technologies (HeLEX) at the University of Oxford and an Associate Fellow at the Institute for Science, Innovation and Society.
His work deals with the dynamics of innovation in biomedical technologies. His current ESRC-funded project investigates how potential clinical applications of new technologies are shaped by scientific, regulatory, economic, and cultural factors, drawing on three interrelated case studies of induced pluripotent stem cells, genome editing using CRISPR-Cas9 and similar tools, and 3D printing of living biological material.
Michael obtained his Ma and PhD from the Institute for Science and Society University of Nottingham and has worked in the Science and Technology Studies Unit (SATSU) at the University of York and the ESRC Centre for Genomics in Society (Egenis) at the University of Exeter before joining Oxford in 2012. He has worked on a range of topics including growth hormone and human enhancement, biobanks, and stem cells and regenerative medicine.
