Matthew completed his PhD at the University of Nottingham in 2009 where he had been investigating the Intergenerational programming of impaired nephrogenesis and hypertension in rats following maternal protein restriction during pregnancy. Matthew then moved to Birmingham University where he worked as a post-doctoral research fellow in the School of Clinical and Experimental Medicine investigating the role of CD31 in atheroma formation. Matthew has now embarked on his second round of post-doctoral reasearch investigating the role of src family kinases (SFKs) in inflammation.
