One of the most important parts of choosing a research programme is finding a supervisor who has relevant expertise in your area of interest. When you find a supervisor who, or a project that, aligns with your research interests, you should make contact with the relevant academic to discuss matters further. They can also advise you on how to apply to become an NUI Galway research student. 

To help you find potential supervisors/PhD projects and identify the key research interests of our academic staff and researchers, you can use the ‘Search’ facility below to search by supervisor name(s) or using keyword searches, e.g. history.

Cormican, Dr Kathryn
Lecturer Above The Bar
My field of expertise is the area of enterprise and innovation engineering. My particular interest is in the design, development and validation of new processes and systems for effective product innovation. Other closely aligned areas include enterprise systems integration and inter-enterprise collaboration. This is an applied research area. It is essential to work closely with industry to identify and prioritise requirements, co-develop solutions and implement and validate new models and systems. A systems ethos which includes people, process and technology related issues are employed in the research. The centre of focus maybe on a specific process, business unit, enterprise or value network which would typically include an enterprise and its relationship with its customers, suppliers, regulatory bodies, and other key stakeholders. The research area is multidisciplinary in nature and spans functions such as engineering, technology and business. The research models real world dynamic systems in order to gain a deep insight into how organisation’s effectively manage their innovative efforts. The following activities are central to this. Analyse root cause of failure and measure the impact and implications of failure on an organization. Model key business processes paying particular attention to the information flow and how decisions are made. Analyse systems relative to key performance indicators such as time, cost, standard, environment, innovation etc. Develop solutions such as (i) information management systems, (ii) process and systems and (iii) models and methodologies based on state of the art best practice Validate and test solution and measure impact relative to key performance indicators. This research adopts a life-cycle approach to product innovation. In other words, we aim to optimise all aspects in the development cycle such as needs analysis, concept development, evaluation and validation, commercialisation and product take back at its end of life.

My research interests lie in the areas of sustainability, sustainable consumption, transport and mobilities, focusing in particular on travel behaviour, attitudes towards mobility, different mobility cultures and the mobility-related (re-)distribution of temporal and spatial resources. I currently lead research on transport, mobilities and the ‘consumption of distance’ as part of ConsEnSus, a four-year collaborative project between Trinity College Dublin and NUI, Galway on consumption, environment and sustainability that is funded by the EPA Ireland (www.consensus.ie). My other areas of expertise include environmental sociology, social-scientific and interdisciplinary sustainability research and cross-cultural studies. I am particularly interested in the relationship between time use and sustainability. Environment, Marine and Energy Built Environment & Smart Cities

Research Fellow
Mitosis and meiosis are fundamental cellular processes required for the correct transmission of genetic material during cell division cycles. Centromeres are key regions of eukaryotic chromosomes where the kinetochore assembles to ensure proper chromosome segregation during mitosis and meiosis. However, despite its essential function, centromere identity is not defined by DNA sequence, but is instead determined epigenetically by the presence of a centromere-specific histone variant CENP-A. During mitosis, errors in CENP-A assembly result in genome instability and aneuploidy, both hallmarks of cancer. Yet the roles and regulation of CENP-A assembly in meiosis are at present largely unknown. My key research question is to understand how CENP-A is targeted to and reproducibly incorporated at centromeres during meiosis and germ cell development. Using the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster as a model developmental system, I aim to investigate the function, cell cycle timing and regulation of CENP-A assembly during male and female gametogenesis. A major focus of my research is to determine how CENP-A is maintained on sperm and if the inheritance of paternal CENP-A is important for centromere function and genome stability in the developing zygote.

Shen, Prof Sanbing
Per Prof Of Fundamental Stem Cell Biolog
Prof. Shen is currently starting a new research group on fundamental stem cell biology at REMEDI. Previously, he has derived new ES cell lines from C57BL/6JCrl mice, and demonstrated that expression of a mutant RARβ was able to promote stemness in mouse ES cells and alter lineage differentiation (Chatzi et al, 2010). His group also developed a technology to differentiate mouse ES cells into homogenous GABAergic neurons, which are deficient in a wide range of neurological conditions such as Huntington’s disease, brain and spinal cord injuries, seizure, stroke, pain, schizophrenia, anxiety and other mood disorders (Chatzi et al, 2009). His team at Galway is making iPS cells from patients of various neurological conditions including schizophrenia, autism, Parkinson’s diseases, velo-cardio-facial syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, glaucoma and cardiomyopathy in collaboration with clinicians from Ireland, Scotland and China. They are also interesting in developing artificial chromosome technology and neuronal differentiation protocols, examining disease phenotype on dish and exploring cell transplantation therapy in animal models.

Research interests focus on the biology, mechanism of action and use of adult mesenchymal stem cells for tissue regeneration in orthopaedic applications including bone and cartilage repair, and osteoarthritis. The laboratory also explores the role of altered stem cell behavior in disease with a focus on rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and atherosclerosis. On-going projects in osteoarthritis research 1) address the mechanism whereby mesenchymal stem cells may act to prevent progression of osteoarthritis through release of pro-reparative factors, 2) targeting of cells or drugs to damaged cartilage in early osteoarthritis by novel functionalised microparticles, 3) development of novel scaffolds for repair of localised cartilage defects, 4) modification of metal surfaces to promote osseointegration of joint replacement devices, 5) investigation of the role of Interleukin 16, a factor we identified as epigenetically regulated, in chondrogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells and 6) the ability of interleukin 10 to modulate inflammation in the osteoarthritic joint. Inappropriate calcification is a feature of osteoarthritis as well as atherosclerosis. The laboratory uses atherosclerotic and normal mesenchymal and vascular-derived stem cells to address mechanisms whereby calcification is initiated or propagated by disease environments.

Lecturer Above The Bar
Research interests include measurement of occupational and environmental exposures to chemical, biological and physical agents. If you consider that the average European spends upwards of 90% of their time indoors, at home, at work, on public and personal transport, our exposure to indoor air pollutants in these environments must play an important role in our health. Exposure to indoor air pollutants has been linked to the development or exacerbation of chronic respiratory illnesses such as asthma, allergies, COPD, and cardiovascular disease. The prevalence of many chronic respiratory diseases has increased in Western Europe the past few decades. Our research on exposure to indoor air pollutants will go towards understanding how environmental exposures affect human health. Some of our research in occupational settings can be used to help design effective technical interventions to control and reduce worker exposures. Dr Coggins has worked in industry and academia and since joining NUI, Galway in 2003 has supervised on research projects funded by private industry and also public bodies.

The movement of ions or charge in the human body is the basis of nerve and muscle activity and is the mechanism by which fluid is absorbed and secreted by the epithelial layers (kidney and gut) of the body. We use electrophysiological techniques from single channels, to single cells, to tissues right up to the whole human body to study the properties of these phenomena. We examine closely their role in disease states such as Parkinson’s disease, autism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), interstitial cystitis, infertility and gastrointestinal permeability.

My research interests focus on investigations of freshwater ecosystem functions. Specifically, I am interested in terrestrial-aquatic linkages between wetlands and small streams to promote conservation of these ecosystems and to explore how anthropogenic changes in habitat alter ecosystem function. One of my objectives is to assess land use impacts in order to develop Best Management Practices relevant for stakeholders in Ireland. In addition, current EU directives require the conservation of natural habitats and wild fauna and flora. In this capacity, I am interested in enhancing our understanding of wetland and aquatic species and habitats suitable for inclusion in the conservation programs. In addition to research, I seek to involve the public through citizen science and community knowledge initiatives (CKI), as this is often a key to successful conservation of natural resources.

Coggins, Dr. Marie
Lecturer Above The Bar
Research interests include measurement of occupational and environmental exposures to chemical, biological and physical agents. If you consider that the average European spends upwards of 90% of their time indoors, at home, at work, on public and personal transport, our exposure to indoor air pollutants in these environments must play an important role in our health. Exposure to indoor air pollutants has been linked to the development or exacerbation of chronic respiratory illnesses such as asthma, allergies, COPD, and cardiovascular disease. The prevalence of many chronic respiratory diseases has increased in Western Europe the past few decades. Our research on exposure to indoor air pollutants will go towards understanding how environmental exposures affect human health. Some of our research in occupational settings can be used to help design effective technical interventions to control and reduce worker exposures. Dr Coggins has worked in industry and academia and since joining NUI, Galway in 2003 has supervised on research projects funded by private industry and also public bodies.

Interests include: Vertex Operator Algebras (VOAs) and Conformal Field Theory, Lie algebras, Riemann surfaces, modular and elliptic functions and combinatorics. VOA theory is a rigorous algebraic approach to ideas originally developed in theoretical physics. VOAs have deep connections with geometry, number theory, Riemann surface theory, modular forms, Lie algebras and group theory. Thus the Monster group (the largest finite sporadic simple group) is the automorphism group of a special VOA which leads to a celebrated relationship between Monster characters and modular groups known as Monstrous Moonshine.

The Combustion Chemistry Centre, is engaged in fundamental research on the combustion of fossil and biofuels. Combustion is the ultimate interdisciplinary field: it requires knowledge of chemistry, physics, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and mathematics. In addition, combustion science has a well defined purpose in society today, facilitating the study and analysis of problems associated with the generation of air pollutants. C3 is concerned with the application of combustion research to the design of energy-efficient engine and gas turbine combustion systems and the impact of their use on toxic and greenhouse gas emissions, thus helping address the problems of urban air pollution and climate change. The strategic goals of the Combustion Chemistry Centre are to: • Promote the sustainable and efficient use of energy in transport • Maximise energy efficiency and energy savings across the economy • Deliver an integrated approach to the sustainable development and use of bio-energy resources • Address global warming by reducing energy-related greenhouse gas emissions • Accelerate energy research development and innovation in support of energy goals The coupling of experimental chemical combustion studies in our shock tubes and rapid compression machine facilities, with detailed kinetic modelling is a unique feature of our research centre. In fact, the group is the only one in Ireland producing experts in the area of combustion. With the Government’s decision to license large-scale incinerators for municipal waste, trained graduates with expertise in incinerator processes will be required. Currently, C3 is the only centre in Ireland with the expertise to train researchers for this growing industry. Informatics, Physical and Computational Sciences Modelling & Applied Mathematics

Dr. Sharon Glynn’s research focuses on understanding the key mechanisms by which chronic inflammation activates pathways leading to cancer initiation and cancer progression. Key mediators of inflammation-induced cancer include NFkB, reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, inflammatory cytokines, prostaglandins and specific microRNAs, which in turn exert their effects though changes in cell proliferation, apoptosis, cellular senescence, DNA mutation rates, DNA methylation, cell invasiveness and angiogenesis. Additionally Dr. Glynn’s research interests include the interactions between prostate cancer cells and bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells, in aiding in the formation of bone metastatic disease.

My research focus is in the development of new gene discovery methods and their application to the identification of risk genes for complex disorders including psychosis (schizophrenia and bipolar disorder). We draw on neuropsychological, electrophysiological and neuroimaging techniques to investigate the function of risk genes for psychosis at the level of individual brain systems. This research is aimed at achieving a better understanding of the biological basis of psychosis, to inform new methods of diagnosis and therapy. Genetic analysis methods include genome-wide association studies (GWAS), analysis of copy number variants (CNVs) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) including human exome sequencing and RNA-seq.

The phenomenon of centrosome amplification (>2 centrosomes per cell) is a characteristic of most human tumours. It is triggered by DNA damage and in turn, perpetuates genomic instability by inducing errors during cell division. Current work in my lab characterises cell invasion as a response to supernumerary centrosome induction. Our work explores how centrosome amplification links tumour-associated genomic instability to intracellular and cytoskeletal changes which promote tumour invasiveness and metastatic potential.

Cancer Biology and therapeutics- Cell Cycle an DNA replication Uncontrolled entry into S-phase is one of the hallmarks of cancer, while defects in the replication machinery and in the proper maintenance of the epigenetic information can lead to tumorigenesis. Our laboratory is interested in studying the mechanisms that regulate genome replication in human cancer cells with particular emphasis on the Cdc7 kinase. Cdc7 acts as a molecular switch for DNA synthesis and is also thought to participate in several other processes that regulate normal cell cycle progression and chromosome dynamics. The identification of new substrates and the characterization of the physiological processes in which Cdc7 is involved, will be pivotal in understanding in what disease context emerging Cdc7 inhibitors may be used for the cancer treatment, and in developing novel biomarkers, thus providing valuable information and tools for rationally driving patient selection and devising combination therapies in preclinical and clinical settings.

Research Interests: My central research objective is to understand how regional climate instabilities develop into abrupt hemispheric and global climate change. Specifically, I focus on the response of the North Atlantic to climate forcing mechanisms during past warm climates by examining atmosphere-ocean circulation systems and their potential role in controlling, propagating, and amplifying climate instabilities into abrupt climate change. Further I’m interested in determining how changes in atmospheric circulation patterns control the strength (temperature, salinity, and density) of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) at central water depth on multidecadal to centennial timescales. Understanding this process is crucial considering (1) that one third of the total heat exchange of the oceans occurs at central water depth (~200-1000 m) and (2) that central waters have warmed at an unprecedented rate over the past few decades. Research Areas: • Paleoceanography/Paleoclimatology • Climate system feedbacks • Natural and Anthropogenic Climate Change • Trace metal and Isotope Geochemistry • Foraminifera Environment, Marine and Energy Marine & Coastal Processes

My research uses molecular simulation to investigate biological and soft matter systems, including proteins, polymers, and membranes. Much of our research focuses on the study of soft interfaces, such as those between immiscible fluids (e.g. oil-water or air-water interfaces), membranes, and soft surfaces. These systems are ubiquitous, occurring in many areas of science and technology, and scientifically fascinating. By their very nature these are complex systems, containing many different chemical components and the properties of these systems can vary over nanometre lengthscales, so their behaviour is rooted in molecular scale properties. I’m particularly interested in understanding processes such as adsorption, assembly, and synthesis at soft interfaces - essentially trying to understand how we can use these systems to create novel, functional materials.

My main research interests are related to hydrographic processes at the continental margin and shelf with a particular emphasis of bio-physical interactions such as at cold-water corals, soft corals and other benthic ecosystems. In particular I have focussed on near seabed dynamics and the role these processes play in sediment transport (especially organic material) and the result of these fluxes in controlling the distribution and the function of benthic ecosystems. In addition I also have an interest in coastal dynamics, land-ocean interactions and water quality monitoring. Currently I am working on the following research topics and would potentially tak eon a PhD student i) The dynamics and sediment transport through the Whittard Canyon system, Celtic Sea Shelf Edge (with a current Hardiman PhD fellow) ii) The role of internal waves at the continental margin in distribution of seabed sedimentary features iii) Salt-freshwater interactions in an anoxic saline lough, Lough Furnace, Co Mayo.

Unfolded protein response in cancer: regulation by microRNAs Tumour hypoxia is a common microenvironmental factor that adversely influences tumour phenotype and treatment response. Cellular adaptation to hypoxia occurs through multiple mechanisms, including activation of the unfolded protein response (UPR). Although the unfolded protein response is primarily a pro-survival response, in the event of prolonged or severe ER stress that is not resolved, the unfolded protein response switches to initiation of apoptosis. The molecular mechanisms involved in the transition of the UPR from a protective to an apoptotic phase are unclear. Global downregulation of miRNAs is a common feature of human tumours. How the dysregulation of miRNA biogenesis promotes tumour development is not clearly understood. The main focus of research in my group is to evaluate the role of microRNAs in determining cell fate during conditions of ER stress. We use a combination of molecular cell biology, transcriptomics, proteomics and miRNA expression profiling to address specific questions such as • What is the role of miRNAs in ER stress-induced apoptosis? • Does impaired miRNA biogenesis contribute to cancer progression?

Post Doctoral Researcher
My research is focused on the discovery and characterization of novel biomarkers of breast cancer (such as circulating miRNA or proteins and tumour localised proteins) that have diagnostic or prognostic potential to stratify breast cancer patients. The ultimate goal is to use these biomarkers to improve patient survival. I also have a strong interest in developing a novel class of inhibitors, that my previous work has demonstrated have a significant potential to improve the treatment of breast cancer.

Personal Professor
Main Interests: Pulsar astrophysics particularly optical pulsar studies using own and observatory instrumentation. Astronomical instrumentation based upon photon-counting detector systems. I have two main projects. 1. Optical and Gamma-ray polarisation studies of isolated pulsars and magnetars. This will be based upon observations taken with the Integral satellite and builds upon a previous project. As well as the gamma-ray Integral observations we will also use ground based facilities using our own equipment and in collaboration with colleagues in Italy. The collaborative work will involve multi-wavelength observations of black-widow pulsars to investigate the strong field within such systems. 2. Development of photon counting detectors for the GASP 2-D polarimeter. We have developed a 2-D polarimeter suitable for measuring polarised emission from optical pulsar and other astronomical objects. Crucial will be the use of 2-d fast imaging cameras. this project will compare two system - first a cooled EMCCD system capable of 10,000 frames / second and second an image intensifier based system. This work could lead to developments outside of astronomy in for example medical imaging. Informatics, Physical and Computational Sciences Data Analytics & Future Networks

In recent years, the word “networks” has appeared frequently in many different areas, and a new multidisciplinary field called Network Science has begun to develop. Indeed, networks are playing a more and more important role in the current scientific literature, in particular in Computational Biology and Computer Science. For example, since the advent of molecular biology, considerable amount of data have been produced (usually represented as graphs) in the quest to understand gene functions and to discover gene modules that underlie cell development, cell disorder, and so on. In other fields, graph analysis is also popular and important. This aspect is witnessed by the increasing number of papers studying networks such as Internet, World Wide Web, online social networks or applying network theory to kernels built from data, and so on. Therefore it can be foreseen that inferring information based on graphs will have an ever-growing impact on both Science and Engineering. My research interests lie in Network Science, and my focus is in graph-based statistical/machine learning models and their applications in Bioinformatics. A bio-molecular network can be viewed as a collection of nodes, representing the bio-molecules, connected by links, representing relations between the bio-molecules. I am working on inferring valuable information from bio-molecular networks. Biomedical Science and Engineering Cancer Biology, Diagnostics and Therapeutics

The movement of ions or charge in the human body is the basis of nerve and muscle activity and is the mechanism by which fluid is absorbed and secreted by the epithelial layers (kidney and gut) of the body. We use electrophysiological techniques from single channels, to single cells, to tissues right up to the whole human body to study the properties of these phenomena. We examine closely their role in disease states such as Parkinson’s disease, autism, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), interstitial cystitis, infertility and gastrointestinal permeability.

I am currently involved in a number of qualitative evidence syntheses, including a review for the Cochrane Methodology Review Group exploring recruitment to trials. I am co-chair for the recently established QUESTS (Qualitative Research in Trials) centre, www.quests.ie, which aims to maximise the integration of qualitative research in randomised trials.
