Matthew Collin is Professor of Haematology at Newcastle University and Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS foundation Trust. He received a PhD from Oxford University in 1992, supervised by Siamon Gordon and graduated with an MD in 1995. After a year at the South Island Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in Christchurch with Derek Hart, he moved to Newcastle in complete training in haematology. He received a Leukaemia Research Fund UK Bennett Senior Fellow in Experimental Haematology in 2006 and spent one year in the lab of Miriam Merad. Back in Newcastle he set up the Human DC Lab (http://www.hudendritic.org) where he continues as Co-PI with Venetia Bigley. His work has focussed on analysing human DC in vivo, from defining the subsets of interstitial DC and mapping their correspondence with murine DC, to identifying genes controlling human DC development, and the contribution of DC deficiency to primary immunodeficiency. He has also made contributions to the field of histiocytosis and is currently interested in the influence of somatic mutation on immunity.
