Dr. Matt Smith, Biology A molecular plant cell biologist, Matthew Smith studies how proteins are delivered to the sub-compartments, or organelles, found within cells by intracellular protein trafficking systems. The long-term goal of Mattís research program is to understand the mechanisms of protein targeting and import into the plant-specific organelles called chloroplasts, which are the site of photosynthesis, and serve as a model organelle. The research will contribute to our understanding of basic cell biology, chloroplast biogenesis, and plant growth and development.
