Matt Murray is a graduate of the class of 2018 at FSU with a degree in biology. In his time at FSU, he participated in undergraduate research in the department of biomedical sciences in the college of medicine under Dr. Robert Tomko Jr.. Within his three years working in this lab, he completed summer internships at Mount Sinai and Rockefeller University in New York City where he found a deep passion for health-related research. This also led him to complete an undergraduate honors thesis studying the link between dysregulation of the proteasome, an important cellular machine for protein quality control, and type 2 diabetes-associated factors. The experiences he had at FSU directly influenced his decision to enter a Ph.D. program at Yale University, where he is currently studying epigenetic and metabolic modifications that occur in pediatric brain cancers.
