The Team

Dr Matthew Bates


Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Fellow


After graduating with honours from the University of Edinburgh in 2002, I obtained further medical training in the North East of England, achieving membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 2005. I am a Specialist Registrar in Cardiology and have recently been awarded a Wellcome Trust Clinical Training Fellowship to undertake research into the effects of exercise on cardiac structure and function in patients with mitochondrial disease as part of my PhD thesis.
