Biographical details

Brian Morris was appointed to the academic staff of the Department (now Discipline) of Physiology in 1978 after 3 years of postdoctoral studies in the USA as a CJ Martin Fellow, then an Advanced Fellow of the American Heart Association, firstly at the University of Missouri, Columbia, in 1975-1976, then at the University of California, San Francisco, from 1976-1978. He has been a Professor since 1999. In Sep 2013 the University of Sydney Senate appointed him as Professor Emeritus.

His research has been mostly in the realm of molecular biology and molecular genetics, with a particular interest in hypertension. Other interests include longevity, diet and lifestyle, HPV detection for cervical screening (patents awarded) and the health benefits of male circumcision.

Brian Morris won the Edgeworth David Medal in 1985 from the Royal Society of New South Wales, the 2006 Faculty of Medicine Award for Excellence in Postgraduate Research Supervision, and a Scroll of Honour Australia Day Award for community service from The Waverley Council in 2007. In 2010 he was selected to present the prestigious Lewis K. Dahl Memorial Lecture by the American Heart Association's Council for High Blood Pressure Research at HBPR2010 in Washington, DC. In 2014 this same body selected Brian Morris as the recipient of the Irvine Page--Alva Bradley Lifetime Achievement Award.

He has served the High Blood Pressure Research Council of Australia as a member of the Executive Committee for 3 six-year terms, being Treasurer from 2005-2010 and Editor during his 2014-2019 term. Brian Morris was a foundation member of the editorial board of Hypertension from 1979-1981, and more recently has been a board member since 2002. He was a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Hypertension from 2003-2007.

Brian Morris has over 348 academic publications. His publications have been cited over 6,500 times to early 2014. His H-index is 43.

Research interests

Brian Morris is involved in research in several different fields. His long-term interest has been the molecular genetics of hypertension. In recent years this has focussed on genome-wide alterations in gene and microRNA expression in human essential hypertension and rodent models of hypertension. Currently he is a co-CI on a NHMRC grant for 2013-2015 with Eugenie Lumbers and colleagues at University of Newcastle on the expression of the various components of the (pro)renin-angiotensin system and other genes in fetal and maternal tissues to determine whether these have a role in premature labour. A major current research involvement is the molecular genetics of longevity as an Honorary Consultant and Volunteer Faculty with the University of Hawaii's Department of Geriatric Medicine at Kuakini Hospital in Honoulu. This followed a 2 month Special Studies Program there in 2012-13 and has led to multiple first-author publications. Brian has considerable interest and numerous publications on the molecular mechanisms of ageing, longevity and the influences of dietary factors on health. His Lab's other research has included the molecular biology of factors involved in alternative splicing of pre-mRNAs, a process that results in the generation of multiple proteins from most of the genes in the genome. Brian was the first in the world to patent the use of PCR for cervical screening (priority date Feb 1987). This test was devised to detect the cancer-causing types of human papillomavirus. His work in the cervical cancer field led him to become interested in the health and medical benefits of male circumcision (www.circinfo.net and www.circumcisionaustralia.org), a field in which he has developed a strong international reputation, with over 60 of his 348 academic publications being on this topic.
