Matt, our newest muscle stem cell biologist
We are excited to welcome Matt to our cc-TDI scientific team. Dr. Matthew Randolph earned his Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2000 from the University of Georgia College of Veterinary Medicine. He practiced mixed animal medicine as an associate veterinarian in northeast Georgia for five years. Matthew then pursued a career in cancer research and recently trained as a stem cell biologist at Emory University, in the laboratory of Dr. Grace Pavlath, while earning his PhD in Biochemistry, Cell, and Developmental Biology. He has joined cc-TDI as a post-doctoral researcher and will investigate novel therapies for childhood cancers, including the cancer of muscle, rhabdomyosarcoma. Matthew and his wife, Casey, enjoy hiking, working with children, and watching science-fiction shows.
