Professor Matthews’ research focuses on type 2 diabetes, including mathematical modelling of insulin resistance and the analysis of pulsatile insulin (and other hormones, especially Growth Hormone) using time-series analysis.
He is deputy co-ordinator and member of the Executive and Policy Advisory Committees of the UK Prospective Study of Diabetes (UKPDS) and founder member of the Oxford Health Alliance, a multiple stakeholder collaboration to address and prevent chronic illness. He is also co-director of National Diabetes Research Network (URDRN) which is managed jointly by Imperial College London and Oxford University.
