Name: Gael MorrowGael Morrow

Job Title: Chancellor’s Fellow

What does your job at RGU involve?

I am a scientist, so most of my time is spent in the lab. My research investigates the molecular and cellular mechanisms that regulate blood clot formation in health and disease, with a particular focus on traumatic injury. When I am not in the lab, I am usually analysing data and writing manuscripts for publication. I will also be responsible for supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students carrying out research projects in my lab.

What attracted you to come to work at RGU?

The Chancellor’s Fellowship would allow me to establish my own laboratory at RGU and myself as an independent researcher in my field. Alongside a beautiful riverside campus!

If you weren’t doing this job, what, in an ideal world, would you like to do for a living?

I would love to have my own ice cream parlour (ice cream is one of my favourite foods!)

What’s your favourite place in Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire?

Bennachie or Duthie Park (can’t decide!)

Best holiday you’ve had and why?

My partner and I visited Norway in March- it is a beautiful country and it was an extra special trip because we got engaged.

Favourite TV show?

I am currently watching Ted Lasso on Apple TV and loving it – it is nice, easy watching.

Favourite band/music?

Stereophonics, Foo Fighters or Taylor Swift

If you’re going to a restaurant and could only have one thing to eat (one course), what would it be?


If you were in charge of the university for one day, what’s the first thing you would do?

Ice cream on Fridays!
