Matthew Larson MD, PhD


Picture of Matthew Larson, MD, PhD


Matt grew up in a suburb of Milwaukee, WI. He headed south to the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill for undergrad where he found a passion for research and cell biology. He returned to Wisconsin, where he joined the MSTP at UW Madison, completing his PhD in cell and molecular biology before completing his MD. He stayed on for the internal medicine preliminary year before starting his radiology residency. While in medical school, he met his wife Jenny. Together, they now live in Middleton, where they spend their free time wrangling their two kids and dog. During the summer, you’re most likely to find Matt somewhere in northern Wisconsin enjoying the outdoors by a lake if he’s not in the city. When in Madison, he’s also probably by a lake taking a walk or enjoying the Memorial Union Terrace. Or taking his kids to the fantastic free zoo (which also happens to be by a lake).
