Professor Joe Keane recipient of grant from Royal City of Dublin Hospital Trust.

The Royal City of Dublin Hospital trust has renewed a successful RCDHT fellowship programme award, to train up doctors to PhD at Trinity College Dublin / St. James's Hospital. Fellows will undergo an apprenticeship in medical research and generate research findings in the area of pulmonary infection.

Dr Laura Gleeson is a graduate of the first RCDHT fellowship, and she just been awarded a competitive €500,000 HRB grant to continue research.

Such academic activity draws the best doctors to work at St. James's Hospital. Fellows who benefit from the RCDHT programme also work on the front lines of COVID care. We face an uncertain future of pandemics, but the renewal of this core funding will secure an ongoing contribution to the national pandemic endeavor, at both the research and clinical service level.
