Dr. Marilyn E. Morris is a Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences at UB. She received her B.Sc. (Pharmacy) from the University of Manitoba, Canada and M.Sc. (Pharmacology) from the University of Ottawa, Canada. After completing a Pharmacy Residency program, she held a faculty position in clinical pharmacy at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada (1976-78). Dr. Morris was awarded her Ph.D. degree in pharmaceutics from SUNY at Buffalo (1984) for work on the pharmacokinetics of sulfate conjugation and inorganic sulfate under the advisement of Dr. Gerhard Levy. She was a Medical Research Council Fellow (1984-85) working on drug metabolism in isolated perfused organ systems with Dr. K. Sandy Pang at the University of Toronto, Canada, before joining this department. Her research interests include drug metabolism and membrane transport, and she has published extensively on renal transport, hepatobiliary transport and hepatic clearance models, and ATP-dependent binding cassette transporters. Her recent research is focused on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of the dietary components, flavonoids and organic isothiocyanates, with an emphasis on their potential for transport and metabolic drug interactions, and their role in cancer therapy and chemoprevention. Other current research projects involve evaluation of the kinetics and renal transport of monocarboxylic acids, including the drug of abuse, γ-hydroxybutyric acid.
