Matthew Campbell MD
Assistant Professor – Hematology and Oncology
I was born in Pittsburgh, PA but grew up in Houston, TX. I attended the University of Texas at Austin for college and obtained my undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering. I then earned my Medical Degree from UT Southwestern. I ventured out of Texas for my Pediatric residency at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, where I spent an additional year serving as chief resident. I then returned to Texas to complete my fellowship in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology at Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, TX where I also served as chief fellow. During fellowship I studied the use of chimeric antigen receptor T cells (CART) in sarcomas, identifying mechanisms of tumor adaptation and resistance to therapy and developing novel CART products to overcome resistance. My current research focuses on identifying biomarkers predictive of response to CART. Additionally, I am a member of the clinical Experimental Therapeutics team, and I am developing a phase II trial studying the combination of immune checkpoint inhibition with chemotherapy in patients with solid tumors. In my free time, I am an avid runner and enjoy spending time with my wife and two little girls.
