Matthew Saunders is a Ph.D. graduate student for the National Flow Cytometry Resource currently working on a collaborative project between the University of New Mexico Flow Cytometry Group in the UNM Pathology department and the NFCR. Matt's project focuses on the study of proteases in a flow cytometry format and high throughput screening for inhibitors of proteases involved in the pathogenesis of bacterial toxins and those involved in human disease states. Matt currently splits his time between working at the University of New Mexico with Dr. Bruce Edwards and Dr. Larry Sklar and at Los Alamos working with Dr. Steve Graves. In his spare time he enjoys snowboarding, bike riding, camping and riding the bus to and from Los Alamos.
