Dr Matt Anderson
Co-founder and Interim CEO / Technical Director
Matt is a multidisciplinary scientist with almost a decade of experience at the interface between molecular cell biology & computational biomedicine. He has a PhD in Complexity Sciences from the University of Bristol, where his work focussed on protein interactions in colorectal cancer.
He has co-founded two start-ups in the field of sustainable agriculture, one of which was an award-winning agritech company and the other is now a national trade association.
Matt joined the Living Systems Institute at the University of Exeter as a postdoctoral fellow in 2017, and then as an industrial research fellow in 2019. His interests prior to working on Quest were in industrial and clinical collaboration, artificial intelligence, mathematical modelling, and molecular cell biology in cancer, diabetes, inflammatory bowel disease, and Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy.
Matt is Quest’s CEO and oversees strategic and business development activities. He will resume a more technical and operational role once a CEO with experience of taking drugs to market joins the team.
