School of Medicine
Department of Histopathology
St Vincent's University Hospital
I am a Consultant Histopathologist at St Vincent's University Hospital Dublin & Dublin Academic Medical Centre and Associate Clinical Professor at UCD School of Medicine with a special interest in Thoracic Pathology.
I am also the Heart and Lung Transplant Pathologist of the National Transplant Unit at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital.
I graduated from Trinity College Dublin in 1996, then got a Master in
Medical Sciences in Pathology at University College Dublin in 1998 and went on
to train in Histopathology in Paris and in London, where I got my MRCPath in
I than completed a PhD thesis in lung fibrosis in parallel to a Fellowship in Thoracic Pathology at Bichat Hospital, Paris in 2007.
My main interests include heart and lung transplant pathology, interstitial lung diseases, lung cancer and cardiac/cardiovascular pathology.
I provide national expertise in interstitial lung disease and in adult sudden cardiac death, working closely with respiratory consultants and cardiothroacic surgeons, the Irish Heart Foundation, The Heart House at the Mater Hospital and the C.R.Y clinic at Tallaght Hospital.
At research levels, I provide expertise in tissue and cell morphology, image analysis, animal models and immunohistochemistry.
I regularly teach respiratory and cardiovascular pathology at undergraduate level at the UCD School of Medicine and at postgraduate level to trainees in Histopathology and Respiratory Medicine.
I am the President of the Pathology section of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Ireland which provides Continuous Medical Education for Consultant and trainee Pathologists in Ireland.
I regularly present at national and international conferences.
I also review for pathology, cardiovascular and respiratory journals.

UCD Medicine Research Themes: Fibrosis
I have a key interest in the study of the pathophysiology of lung fibrosis.
Other areas of interest include smoking related lung diseases, cystic lung diseases, lung cancer and sudden adult death.
I also have keen interest in tissue morphology and analysis of fibrosis using novel microscopic techniques such as multiphoton microscopy.
I am the Founder and director of the Research Immunohistochemistry Core Technology UCD Conway, which is a joint not-for-profit venture of UCD School of Medicine, Experimental Pathology at UCD and the Histopathology Department at St Vincent's University Hospital, designed to provide specialised support to translational research investigators at UCD, the wider Dublin Academic Medical Centre and external research groups, with support from the industry (DAKO).
We perform fully automated immunohistochemical staining protocols, in line with diagnostic laboratory standards, using reproducible standardised conditions. We can also troubleshoot and optimise antibody staining, advise on optimal cases/tissue and antibody selection, proper collection and fixation of the tissue(s) and the evaluation of results using semi-quantitative analysis as well as digital pathology.
