Health matters to us all. Trinity College Dublin's health-related research spans basic and clinical sciences and disciplines ranging from the secrets of brain aging and quality of life assessment to the molecular biology of the parasites of global disease. Our scientists are at the forefront of their disciplines engaged in leading hypothesis driven research and groundbreaking industry-academic partnerships.

Trinity has taken a lead in translational biomedical research on the Island of Ireland, pioneering a clinician-scientist partnership model that has yielded significant breakthroughs in infection and immunity, cancer, genetics and neuroscience.

The research centres and institutes dedicated to biosciences and translational research in Trinity College Dublin are supported through sources as diverse as the Higher Education Authority, Science Foundation Ireland, the Wellcome Trust, Industry, the Health Research Board, the US National Institutes of Health, the EU and increasingly, philanthropy.

We are committed to recruiting the best international investigators to work in Trinity's unique interdisciplinary environment and to sending our graduates onwards to further international work in Biosciences and Translational Research. In this regard our programmes are under constant renewal, and significant infrastructure investment is underway so that Trinity's activities in this theme are best placed for societal gain. 

In Trinity College Dublin's Biosciences and Translational Research we focus on four major strategic themes:

  • Infection and Immunity
  • Neurosciences
  • Cancer
  • Genetics

With the full breadth of life, health and related science disciplines underpinning our interdisciplinary activity.
