Matthew White

Matthew graduated with a degree in Biomedical Science at the University of Cardiff in 2009 before completing a PhD in Developmental Neuroscience with Alun Davies in 2014. Here he studied the role of TNF superfamily members in the growth and survival of peripheral sympathetic neurons using primary cultured cells and transgenic models. He now works for Jemeen Sreedharan within the Coleman group investigating the biology of ALS motor neuron disease through a combination of in vitro primary neuronal culture and molecular techniques. The work aims to identify and characterise novel suppressors of TDP-43 toxicity in motor neurons.
