Matthew Rutar

 

Dr Matthew Rutar is a Research Fellow based in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience. His main research interest is in exploring the immunological environment of the eye and brain, and particularly their role in orchestrating inflammation in ocular diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a disease that is a leading cause of blindness worldwide.

Matthew is well-versed in retinal cell biology and molecular biology techniques in unravelling the inflammatory factors at play in retinal pathology, and has recently branched into applications such as high-throughput sequencing and gene therapy. His current research will explore the role of innate immune signalling cascades in driving inflammation and leukocyte recruitment in retinal dystrophies such as AMD. Ultimately, his work aims to uncover innovative therapeutics that suppress inflammation, and improve patient outcomes.
