Nick Morrice obtained his PhD from the University of London in 1987 and after 7 years at the University of Melbourne in Australia, joined the MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit at the University of Dundee with Professor Sir Philip Cohen. Here he set up the proteomics facility for both the University of Dundee and the MRC Unit, specializing in protein phosphorylation site analysis using a combination of mass spectrometry and Edman sequencing of radiolabelled phosphopeptides. He became a group leader in 2002 running both a research group and core facility before moving to the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research In 2010 as Head of Proteomics and Group Leader.
After setting up a successful proteomics and metabolomics facility he joined AB Sciex in 2014 as a senior support specialist for proteomics. His main focus with the company is developing microflow applications with the TripleTOF mass spectrometers to improve throughput of both DDA and Swath analyses of complex biological samples. Nick has published over 200 papers in the field of signal transduction and proteomics and has been a member of a number of scientific societies such as The Biochemical Society and the ABRF.
