Title of Research Project: Understanding the Experience of Transition to Adulthood for young people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

Academic Supervisor: Dr Michelle Spirtos


I am a senior occupational therapist currently working part time in the Central Remedial Clinic and completing a masters research study with Trinity College Dublin. I am qualified for 27 years and have experience working in acute hospital settings, primary care and specialist children services. I am interested in researching supports available for young people as they experience transition to adulthood, particularly for young people with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
