Mathew Davis-Lunn is an MRes Advanced Biological Science student within the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton.

I graduated from the University of Surrey in 2020, completing a BSc in biochemistry. For my dissertation project, I studied the diurnal rhythms in expression of post-synaptic markers of plasticity. My undergraduate degree also included a placement year at UCL, where I studied the role of coenzyme A in protecting protein thiol groups from oxidation.

Research interests

I am currently working in the research group led by Dr. Melissa Andrews, where we are studying the role of integrins and their signalling in the regeneration of neurons following spinal cord injury.

Why I chose: MRes Advanced Biological Science

I chose this specific project to further specialise in neuroscience, where I hope to expand my knowledge of the field by exposure to other current areas of research.

Aims for the future

To gain more broad experience in neuroscience, and progress to a career studying the brain and it’s higher cognitive functions.

Supervisor: Dr Melissa Andrews
