Ocular Immunology, Autoimmunity, T Lymphocytes, Fibroblasts, Thyroid-Associated Ophthalmopathy, Clinical Trials
The aim of Matt’s research is to investigate further the interaction between T lymphocytes and orbital fibroblasts in patients with Thyroid-Associated Ophthalmopathy, an inflammatory condition of the orbit, closely associated with autoimmune thyroid disease, particularly Graves’ disease. The eventual goal is to translate fundamental immunological abnormalities in this condition into novel therapies that will be of genuine benefit to patients. On this basis, he is keen to collaborate with other clinicians, researchers and groups with particular interest or focus on Thyroid-Associated Ophthalmopathy in any form of clinical or basic science research.
