TYK2 signalling and IBD: the key to early onset Ulcerative Colitis?


From 2009-2012 I carried out a Bachelor of Science at National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) with my final year focusing on Human Anatomy. In 2013 I completed a Master of Science in Toxicology at NUIG, with research focusing on TNF-alpha inhibitors in Crohn’s Disease.

In 2014 I received a Master of Science by Research in Anatomy carried out on a Medical Trainee Scholarship at University College Dublin, with research investigating microRNAs in a neonatal cell model of fibrosis and a rabbit model of neonatal Subglottic Stenosis. Since 2014 I have been a Research Assistant at MRC-EWL, Cambridge, studying nanominerals in ileal peyer’s patch both in normal and crohn’s disease affected tissue.
