Professor Corinne Houart, Vice Dean (Research) at the IoPPN and a Professor of Developmental Neurobiology at the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology, opened the night with several anecdotes highlighting Professor Grubb's collegiate and collaborative nature.

Professor Matthew Grubb is a Professor of Neuroscience and a group leader at the Centre for Developmental Neurobiology (CDN). His group's research interest is the function, development and regeneration of the nervous system. He joined CDN as a group leader in 2010 after receiving the Research Career Development Fellowship from the Wellcome Trust.

As a strong proponent of open science, Professor Grubb encourages his group and others to be transparent and publish all data including negative results. British Neuroscience Association recognises his effort in 2022 by awarding him the BNA Credibility Prize.

Professor Juan Burrone, a Professor of Developmental Neurophysiology at King's, delivered the Vote of Thanks to end the night. He described Professor Grubb as a great colleague and an insightful thinker.

It was a huge honour and privilege to give my inaugural lecture at the IoPPN, especially in front of so many colleagues, friends and family who’ve helped me on my journey. It was also a lot of fun! I look forward to the challenges and opportunities my future work at King’s will bring"
