Dr. Louise Horrigan BSC, MSC, PHD
I graduated with a B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Physiology from NUI Galway in 1998, and then completed a M.Sc. Neuropharmacology also at NUI Galway. I worked for a year in the Infection & Immunity Research Laboratory at NUI Maynooth, before returning to Galway to pursue a PhD in Immunopharmacology. I worked as a fixed term lecturer in the Department of Pharmacology for a period of 4 years, and I am currently employed as a University Teacher in Physiology since 2005.
