Jacqui Morris is a Professor in Rehabilitation and Health at the University of Dundee. She leads the Living Well with Long-Term Conditions research group in the School of Health Sciences.

She worked as a clinical physiotherapist in stroke rehabilitation in the NHS before being appointed to a joint clinical academic role as Research Lead for the Allied Health Professions in NHS Tayside and Senior Research Fellow in the School of Health Sciences in 2010. She was awarded a University of Dundee Early Career Researcher prize in 2014. She was appointed as Senior Lecturer in the NMAHP Research Unit at Glasgow Caledonian University in 2015, returning to the University of Dundee as Reader in 2017, becoming Professor in 2024.

Jacqui graduated in Physiotherapy in 1984 and received an MSc in 2003. Her PhD entitled The Upper Limbs after Stroke: Exploring Effects of Bilateral Training and Determinants of Recovery was obtained in 2009 from Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. 


Jacqui’s research interests focus on developing and testing complex rehabilitation interventions that promote recovery in stroke and other long-term conditions. She leads interdisciplinary teams to develop behaviour change strategies that support people living in the community to achieve their long-term recovery, physical activity and rehabilitation goals. She is particularly interested in working with people to understand their challenges and in working with them to co-design research and interventions with them to meet their needs. She works closely with national and international Allied Health Professions practitioners to influence rehabilitation practice and service delivery, and the impact of her work was recognised in her 4* world-leading impact case study in REF 2021.

Her methodological expertise is in evidence synthesis, complex intervention development, mixed methods research and clinical trials. She has an extensive track record of peer review publications and externally funded grant income and has acted as external advisor for policy and practice developments and research funding bodies.
