Research Programmes

Our research focus 

At UCD Conway, our vision is to design new approaches to disease prevention and therapy based on a thorough understanding of the biological molecular mechanisms that cause disease. Our key research strands centre on: 

  1. Molecular Mechanisms of Disease
  2. Systems Biology
  3. Translational Medicine  

 Our researchers work in the following thematic areas of focus:

  1. Diabetes & Vascular Biology 
  2. Infection, Inflammation & Repair 
  3. Neuroscience
  4. Cancer 

Research in action 

Our biomedical researchers have developed strong links with academic centres, teaching hospitals and industry. These partnerships allow us to work interactively, creating a research continuum that ensures that all breakthroughs in chemical and biological science are rapidly applied to the investigation and treatment of disease.
