Profile Summary

Mike is Richard D. Sacks Collegiate Professor of chemistry at the University of Michigan and a member of its Comprehensive Cancer Center and its Core Center for Musculoskeletal Research. He presently serves on the editorial boards of the Journal of Biomedical Optics, Journal of Raman Spectroscopy and Calcified Tissue International. He is the editor or co-editor of two monographs on spectroscopy and imaging, as well as several volumes of Proceedings of SPIE. His honors include the ACS Division of Analytical Chemistry Award in Spectrochemical Analysis, the Anachem Award, the Society for Applied Spectroscopy New York Section Gold Medal and Meggers Awards, the Mann Award in Applied Raman Spectroscopy, and several University of Michigan awards.
His research interests include Raman spectroscopy and Raman imaging. He is a pioneer in the analytical applications of Raman spectroscopy, particularly in its uses in microscopy and imaging. He has made important contributions to Raman spectroscopic instrumentation based on holographic and liquid crystal optics and has been a leader in development of computational techniques for multivariate Raman image processing and three-dimensional Raman imaging.
Morris has been an active researcher in biomedical Raman spectroscopy for over twenty-five years. For over ten years his laboratory has led the development of Raman spectroscopy for study of musculoskeletal tissues. He and his co-workers have published on bone biomechanics, structure/function relationships in mouse models for genetic disorders, mechanisms of tissue mineralization and non-invasive spectroscopic assessment of bone quality.
