Matt Sweet is a Group Leader at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (IMB). He completed his PhD under the supervision of David Hume in 1996 at The University of Queensland, Australia. He then undertook an NHMRC CJ Martin post-doctoral training fellowship at the University of Glasgow (Scotland, UK) in the laboratory of Eddy Liew. After returning to Australia, he had a number of key roles within the Cooperative Research Centre for Chronic Inflammatory Diseases, before establishing his own group at the IMB in 2007. His laboratory studies the innate immune system, with an emphasis on the roles of pattern recognition receptors, their signaling components and their downstream target genes in regulating both infectious and inflammatory disease processes. His recent work has focused on immune cell metabolism in the context of inflammation and host defence.
