Matt is a PhD student on the SoCoBio DTP, based primarily at Southampton.

2020-2021: MRes Advanced Biological Sciences, University of Southampton

2016-2020: BSc Biochemistry, University of Surrey

Research interests

Matt’s research interest lies within neuroscience, specifically neuronal biochemistry and how this can be manipulated in the context of higher brain functions, plasticity, or neuroregeneration. As such, his first rotation with the SoCoBio DTP is a continuation of the project undertaken during his MRes at Southampton, focusing on the role of focal adhesion proteins such as FAK, talin and the integrin receptor in regulating neurite outgrowth, supervised by Dr. Melissa Andrews.

MPhil/PhD supervision: Dr. Melissa Andrews and Dr. Ben Goult

MPhil/PhD research title: Defining the role of the talin-kindlin-integrin axis in the regulation of neurite outgrowth

Research funding agency/body: BBSRC
