Professor Paul Matthews trained as a clinician scientist at the University of Oxford and Stanford University, USA, and has pioneered applications of groundbreaking clinical imaging technologies, founding two internationally leading research imaging centres, both to accelerate drug development and in the clinic. Paul was awarded an OBE in 2008 for his services to neuroscience, and in 2014 was elected to the Academy of Medical Sciences.

Prof Matthews is Head of the Department of Brain Sciences at Imperial, Chair for the MRC Neurosciences and Mental Health Board and, in addition to his role at the UK DRI at Imperial, he leads an innovative research programme, combining brain imaging, genomics and other cutting-edge techniques to research inflammatory mechanisms in Alzheimer’s disease. In 2024, Prof Matthews stepped down from his role as Centre Director of the UK DRI at Imperial, to become Director of the Rosalind Franklin Institute.
