Matt Heidtman

Matt Heidtman is a cell biologist/microbiologist with 10+ years experience in life science research. He completed his Ph.D. training at Dartmouth Medical School in the lab of Dr. Charles Barlowe where he investigated the molecular mechanisms underlying ER-to-Golgi transport using the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as model system. After his graduate work, he spent 4 years as a post-doctoral fellow in the lab of Ralph Isberg at Tufts Medical School. At Tufts, Dr. Heidtman studied the molecular pathogenesis of Legionella pneumophila, an intracellular microbe that causes Legionnaire's pneumonia. Dr. Heidtman was the recipient of a post-doctoral fellowship from the National Institutes of Health at Tufts. At Glycosyn, he is currently developing both yeast and bacterial expression systems for the production of human milk oligosaccharides.
