Matthew Beyersdorf assists the Biotechnology Group in patent prosecution. He has extensive knowledge in the areas of protein biochemistry, drug discovery, chemistry of natural products and transcriptional mechanisms of metastatic cancer.

Prior to joining Wolf Greenfield, Matthew was a doctoral student at the University of Michigan where his research centered on the discovery and identification of natural products that modulate transcriptional processes relevant to prostate and breast cancers. He was responsible for work that led to four high-impact academic publications under preparation for submission, including two first-author manuscripts.

Additionally, Matthew was the Director of Public Relations and a Project Manager at miLEAD Consulting Group, a non-profit consulting firm that provides short-term consulting services to scientists and technology companies in Southeast Michigan.
