Humphrey Moynihan is Senior Lecturer in Organic Chemistry (Pharmaceutical/Medicinal) in UCC. He received a B.Sc. (Hons) degrees in Chemistry from University College Cork, followed by a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry  working in the group of Dr. D. G. McCarthy. He carried out postdoctoral work at the Universities of Exeter and Bristol before joining Liverpool John Moores University as Lecturer in Organic Chemistry in 1994. He returned to UCC in 2002, where he has developed research into the solid state of pharmaceutical and organic compounds, including issues such as crystal polymorphism, morphology and size distribution, and crystallization process control. He is a PI in the Analytical and Biological Chemistry Research Facility in UCC, and is also a participant in the Solid State Pharmaceutical Cluster, an SFI Strategic Research Cluster involving collaboration between five universities and ten pharmaceutical companies. He is involved in the teaching of Organic and Pharmaceutical/Medicinal Chemistry.

Most pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs and fine chemicals are crystalline solids in their pure forms. Crystallization provides a method of isolating pure compounds in a convenient physical form. Many compounds crystallize in more than one form - crystal polymorphs and solvates. Crystals can also differ in their shape (morphology, habit), size and size distribution. Controlling crystal form and morphology is very important for pharmaceuticals, foods, pigments and many other high-value fine chemicals.

 In UCC, molecular crystallization research is carried out in collaboration between Dr. Humphrey Moynihan, Dr. Simon Lawrence and Prof. Anita Maguire. Major grant awards for this team include SFI Strategic Research Cluster funding (Solid State Pharmaceutical Cluster; in collaboration with UL [Prof. B. K. Hodnett], NUIG, TCD, UCD and nine PharmaChemical companies), FP6 Marie Curie Transfer of Knowledge funding (DEPMaB), SFI UREKA Site funding, the Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation Fund Proof of Concept scheme, IRCSET and other awards.
