About me

I am Csaba Matta, molecular biologist, and PhD in biomedical research. I was born in Hungary, graduated from the University in Debrecen in Hungary, and have been working there as an assistant professor (which is quite similar to a lecturer in the UK).

I am experiencing an exciting period in my career as a researcher – having been awarded a Marie Curie individual research fellowship, I have left my home department in Hungary for the first time in my life, and moved to the UK. This is my first independent postdoctoral period at a foreign institution, the University of Surrey. The aim of my fellowship is to gain experience and receive advanced training through research focusing on gaining a better understanding on the molecular and physiological background of osteoarthritis, the most prevalent form of musculoskeletal diseases. The disease is currently incurable, I must add.

From time to time I will share relevant information about the progress of my training, my experience in the UK, and the background of my research interests.
