Research Expertise


I have had a varied research career, including: Scientific laboratory based research, in UCD 2008-2009 Conway Institute examining novel preotomic biomarkers in malignant melanoma Translational research especially MRI from Northwestern University in Chicago, looking at different non-contrast angiographic techniques including phase contrast and quiescent single-shot. Clinical research, including reviews, comparative studies and currently involved in a multicentre study looking at MR enterography in Crohns Disease. As my career has progressed I have become more involved in supervisory roles in the research process, as well as lead/co-author.
