UCD School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science
The School plays a major role in one of the most rapidly advancing areas of science today, the field of biomolecular and biomedical research and its impact on our understanding of health and disease in all forms of life. These research fields underpin key industries with substantial presence here in Ireland, for example Ireland is home to 9 of the top 10 global pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
The diversity of expertise within the School is a major facilitator for interdisciplinary teaching, scholarship and research and provides a unique forum to investigate biological systems at molecular, cellular and whole organism levels. The School focuses on three key areas of biomolecular research: Infection Biology, Biotechnology and Disease Mechanisms, which comprise neuroscience, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.
