Research

Research Interests

Research interests include the study of molecular  predictors of disease severity in bronchiolitis. In collaboration with researchers at Molecular Medicine Ireland. I am co-supervising Dr Ronan Leahy who was a awarded a HRB grant and is performing a PhD currently. I have a strong interest in clinical research particularly cystic fibrosis and have collaborated on research nationally and internationally on CF liver disease, CF related diabetes, radiological changes and radiation exposure in this patient group.

Research in medical education interests me and the impact of the EWTD on teaching and training formed the basis of my thesis for my masters and a paper has just been accepted pertaining to same. I have been on maternity leave from July 2012 to end April 2013.
