Only heard now about Matt's passing. And very sorry to hear! Matt was the PO on two of my grants, and I always enjoyed our lengthy chats. He was always helpful and supportive, and gave great constructive advice. Met him a few times at meetings too, and it was always a delight.
I know he loved the blues. That is what I'll put on now... To you Matt! I'll be missing you.

Matt was a great guy and a pleasure to work with- very sorry to hear of his passing.

I was very sorry to hear the sad news about Matt's sudden passing. He was the program officer for my grant. He was a soft spoken person who cared about science and people engaged in science. I will miss him dearly.

I'm really sadden to hear so late of Matt's passing. I came to know Matt as the program officer of one of my research grants. While he and I never had a chance to meet face to face we frequently end up talking on the phone about different research ideas. I will really miss him as a person and as a colleague who's opinion I valued greatly.

I am devastated by this news. Matt was a good friend. We went on a 10 day trip to the Galapagos together for my 40th birthday. I spoke to Matt on the phone almost every week, and almost every day recently before he passed away. I came to visit him when I was in the area for study sections. Matt was very smart, and would often send me really interesting new articles. This should not have happened. I attached a photo of Matt underwater in the galapagos. I will really miss him.

'Will be praying for comfort for your family; I enjoyed Matthew as a student at NAHS and am saddened to learn of your loss.

Matthew starting working in my lab at MUSC (Charleston, SC) while he was an undergraduate at the College of Charleston. He then joined the lab as a staff member after graduating. He was a valued member of the lab and contributed to a number of significant findings. I saw the scientist potential in Matt and was happy to steer him to the graduate program at OHSU. I have since followed his career, including his most recent position at NIH/NIAAA. Matt was an intelligent, gentle and kind individual. He will be greatly missed by the alcohol research community and beyond.

I had the pleasure of coaching Matthew as an age group swimmer on the Augusta Swim League. A fine young man and a hard worker seemed to be a precursor to his academic success as he matured. Prayers for his family.

Matt was one of our stellar program officers who did a lot for the genetics community especially in the area of Epigenetics. He will be dearly missed by all the scientists in this area of research.
Matt, we will dearly miss you here at DNB, NIAAA.
