Our Research

Postgraduate research students are admitted by the Dean of Graduate Studies on the advice of the Head of the Department and the Dean of the Faculty in which the applicant intends to undertake research. Places will be offered only to well-qualified applicants for whom the supervision of the research has been arranged. Formal application should be made on forms available for degrees by research only which are available from the Graduate Admissions Office.

The department is equiped to perform a wide variety of cellular biology, molecular biology, immunocytochemical and tinctorial staining techniques. Research is currently based in the Sir Patrick Dun Research Laboratory, which is located in St. James's Hospital, and the Molecular Pathology Research Laboratory, located in The Coombe Women's Hospital. In addition, provision has been made for a research facility in the new hospital based in Tallaght.

The department is active in promoting collaborative studies with other departments within the college (Haematology, Genetics), and at National and International Levels.
