Research:

Matthew's research involves designing materials to control immune cell behaviour. In particular, he is using interdisciplinary methods that integrate engineering principles into mainstream immunology with the specific goal of constructing immunologically active biomaterials for cancer therapy. To do this, he is investigating how immune cells respond to microenvironmental cues (both biophysical and biochemical) over different time and length scales. Using insights gained from these studies, he hopes to make immune cell-based cancer therapy a more cost-effective option for patients.
