Gareth Morgan, PhD is a Research Assistant Professor at the Boston University School of Medicine. His research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of AL amyloidosis with the aim of developing new treatments for this disease. Before arriving at the university, Dr. Morgan was a Postdoc Research Associate at The Scripps Research Institute for a number of years before being promoted to Senior Staff Scientist. He has mentored undergraduate students and is a member of three different scientific societies, including the Protein Society.
