Dr Matthew Boyles

SAFENANO Senior Toxicologist

Matthew Boyles (BSc, PhD) joined SAFENANO at the Institute of Occupational Medicine in May 2017 as Senior Toxicologist. After graduating with an honours degree in Biomedical Science, Matthew undertook a PhD in Nanotoxicology at Edinburgh Napier University. Since completing his PhD in 2012 Matthew has held numerous post-doctoral positions in the UK and abroad; working in multidisciplinary consortiums and for industrial partners he has gained valuable experience in testing biological responses to particles, fibres and nanomaterials, and in their synthesis and characterisation. Matthew’s interests lie in various material applications including those used for medical purposes, and in industrial processes, as well as substances found to be environmental toxins.

The underpinning focus of Matthew’s research is to provide expert advice leading to the safe production, handling and disposal of particles, fibres and nanomaterials, and ultimately to support innovation and commercialisation. This is reflected in his broad range of peer-reviewed publications, and in the authorship of invited book chapters and review articles. For SAFENANO Matthew is involved in the risk, hazard and toxicological assessment of commercial or in-development materials and chemicals, in both the form of consultancy and in laboratory-based assessment.  Matthew is currently involved in EU-funded projects 'PolyGraph' and 'EIROS'.
