Professor Matthew Terry


Matthew Terry is a plant biologist at the University of Southampton. The aim of his research is to understand how chloroplast development is regulated by the light environment and the nature of the retrograde signals that allow the chloroplast to communicate with the nucleus to moderate this process.

Matthew was awarded his Ph.D. at the University of Southampton and undertook postdoctoral research at the University of California, Davis and RIKEN, Japan, where he worked on elucidating the chromophore biosynthesis pathway of the phytochrome family of plant photoreceptors. He returned to Southampton to take up a Royal Society University Research Fellowship and is now Professor of Molecular Plant Biology at the Centre for Biological Sciences. He is currently Deputy Chair of the Plant Section Committee at the Society for Experimental Biology.
