Biography Detailed

I graduated with my PhD in Microbiology from University College Cork in 2010, having spent half of my candidacy at the School of Microbiology, U.C.C. and half at the Department of Biological Sciences, University of Delaware, Newark, Delaware, U.S.A. For my dissertation, I investigated the survival and virulence mechanisms employed by a pathogenic marine bacterium. My first Post-Doctoral position was at the Department of Microbiology-Immunology, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Chicago, IL where I investigated factors mediating the unique symbiotic relationship which exists between a marine bacterium and it’s eukaryotic host. Upon returning to the School of Microbiology, U.C.C., I undertook a Post-Doctoral position examining the genetic determinants which contribute to the biosynthetic potential of a species of marine bacteria. I joined the CCRC in November 2017,

as part of the Vaccines and Imaging Partnership. You can read more about this project at www.vip-fp7.com
