Matthew Brown
Undergraduate Researcher

Profile PictureMatthew Brown is a first-year undergraduate student at UF majoring in Biochemistry. He joined the Brusko Lab in the summer of 2019 in order to study the autoimmune response involving the destruction of pancreatic β cells which leads to Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).

Matthew is currently working with Dr. Robert Sharp to investigate the functions between two transmembrane proteins (SIRPγ & CD47) to determine if there is a correlation between a lack of these proteins and a higher incidence of T1D pathogenesis.
