Dr Matthew Murray is a childhood cancer specialist working at Addenbrooke's, and an Associate Lecturer of the University of Cambridge, managing children with all types of solid tumours in the East of England, as well as working closely with haematology colleagues in the management of children with leukaemia. He has a particular interest in germ cell tumours and is a member of the NCRI Children's Germ Cell Tumour Clinical Studies Subgroup.

His translational research programme involves the study of genetic changes in solid tumours of childhood, with a focus on germ cell tumours. He has identified that the same genetic changes seen in germ cell tumours may also be found in the bloodstream at the time of diagnosis, offering the potential to improve the accuracy of diagnosis.

Dr Murray also has an interest in the late effects of cancer treatment. In addition, he has a special interest in Medical Education and has completed a Postgraduate Certificate of Medical Education.
