Dr Anna Morgan


In support of equality, diversity, and inclusion at Kingston University, I am collaborating with Dr Mehmet Dorak, Head of School for Life Sciences, Pharmacy and Chemistry, to lead the development of Café SWAN - the Athena SWAN journal society for LSPC.  We will be facilitating staff and student discussions around issues affecting EDI in the sciences, with monthly meetings to discuss current research in this area, supporting action on Athena SWAN principles across the school.  See KU Extra for details of our next speaker.

In my role as an academic, I am the Module Leader for LS4004 Human Physiology, a core module for all BSc (honours) students in Pharmacology, Biological Sciences, Biomedical Science, and Nutrition programmes.  Prior to this I was the Maplethorpe Fellow from 2012-2014 at King's College London, Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, where my research included investigations of experimental inflammation using nanomaterials.

My interdisciplinary background includes psychology as well as pharmaceutical sciences, with an interest in pedagogical development of soft skills in among science students, through interlinking subject-based knowledge and transferable skills.  This interest has led to a research collaboration with Dr Huda Morgan, supported by SADRAS.  We are currently investigating staff and students' understanding of soft skills within the SEC Faculty, with a view to developing tools for embedding soft skills training and assessment.  Collaborations are also welcome on pedagogy with an interest in formative assessment, embedding critical analysis, and improving accessibility.

In the lab, my current research includes development of in-vivo studies using non-animal models of behaviour to investigate the role of pharmacologic and nutraceutical agents in aquatic and terrestrial snails.  Collaborations are welcome, with an interest in oxidative stress, inflammation, learning & memory, and the NC3Rs.
