Dr Matthew Hyde
Matthew Hyde is a Research Associate in the Section of Neonatal Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London
Dr Hyde read Animal Science at Imperial College London, graduating with a first class honours degree. In 2005 he was awarded a 3-year BBSRC doctoral training grant and studied for his PhD under the supervision of Dr Lynne Clarke and Dr Paul Kemp at Imperial College London. During his PhD he spent periods working in Professor Emilio Herrera’s group in Madrid, where he studied hepatic lipid metabolism and in Dr Julian Griffin’s laboratory in Cambridge, where he carried out metabolomic analysis. Since graduating he has worked as a research assistant in Professor Neena Modi’s group at Imperial College, studying the effects of the in-utero environment and prematurity on outcomes at birth and in later life.
Dr Hyde’s research interests centre on programming during the perinatal period, in particular the changes in metabolism that occur at birth and the impact these have on body composition and long term health. Much of his research has focussed on the role of birth as a programming event. Dr Hyde also has research interests in the aetiology of fatty liver disease in neonates, and newborn nutrition.
