Personal profile


Dr Matthew Eramo completed his PhD in the laboratory of Professor Christina Mitchell in 2016, with his PhD and post-doctoral research focussing on the regulation of autophagy and lysosome recycling in the maintenance of skeletal muscle homeostasis. In particular, how dysfunction of these biochemical pathways lead to human muscular dystrophies and myopathies, and their influence on mitochondrial quality control and whole-body metabolism. In 2019, Dr Eramo joined the laboratory of Professor Mike Ryan, and is currently investigating novel proteins involved in maintenance of mitochondrial cristae architecture and how these control mitochondrial structure, dynamics and function.
