Mr. Matthew Drummond, Biological Research Technician

Matthew completed his BSc (Hons) in Pharmacology in 2009. His final year honours project looked at the relationship of NG2+ glia distribution in the postnatal mouse brain in relationship to glial and neuronal maturation.  He then went on to study at the University of Dundee and characterised the utility of oxidative stress transgenic reporter systems in mice; to detect neurotoxicity. In 2014 he joined Covance a leading contract research organisation as a cellular pathology scientist and worked to oversee the preclinical toxicology assessment of novel drug candidates prior to clinical evaluation.  Matthew joined the team in 2018 to provide technical support for the lab.
