G. Stephen Morris, PT, PhD., FACSM received his PhD from the University of Texas and completed a NIH Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the muscle biochemistry laboratory of Dr. Kenneth Baldwin at UC Irvine.  Seeking credentials to do human research, he later earned a MS degree in Physical Therapy from Texas Woman’s University, Houston, Texas and a license in Physical Therapy.  After teaching stints in physical therapy programs at Texas Woman’s University and Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, he joined the Dept. of Rehabilitation Services at UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.  There he both treated patients and pursued research focused on identifying treatment outcome measures that are most appropriate for use in the oncology rehabilitation setting and the integration of the principles of exercise physiology into oncology rehabilitation.  He served briefly as the Director of Rehabilitation Services at St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital and conducted research in the area of cancer survivorship.  He recently retired from the Physical Therapy Program at Wingate University, Wingate, NC and was named a Distinguish Professor upon his retirement.  He currently serves as the President of the Oncology Section of the American Physical Therapy Association.  Dr. Morris has published and spoken nationally and internationally on the utility and implementation of exercise training principals in the context of oncology rehabilitation.  He has served as a subject matter expert on an NIH panel focusing on opportunities and gaps in cancer rehabilitation and currently serves on the planning committee of the ACSM International Multidisciplinary Roundtable on Exercise and Cancer Prevention and Control.
