Excellence in Translational Research
Research training is now a prerequisite for many medical and scientific careers. We offer graduates the opportunity to pursue a research degree in a multidisciplinary translational environment focused on increasing knowledge on the prevention and treatment of human disease.
Be Part of Ireland's Most Expansive Medical Network
Graduate students carry out original research under the supervision of established researchers associated with the School from the UCD Conway Institute of Biomedical and Biomolecular Science, the Centre for Research in Infectious Disease (both based on the Belfield Campus) and the School's major teaching hospitals including St Vincent's University Hospital, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Children's University Hospital (Temple St), Our Lady's Children's Hospital (Crumlin) and the Coombe Women's & Infants' University Hospital, and the National Maternity Hospital, Holles St.
Flexible, Lab & Patient-Focused Research Programmes
Projects range from laboratory-based research in molecular medicine and cellular biology to patient-focused studies on the impact and treatment of disease.
Further education and skills development programmes are available to all research students through programmes in the School, the UCD Conway Institute and Molecular Medicine Ireland. Students also have the opportunity to hear from and interact with national and international experts at research seminars hosted by the School and the UCD Conway Institute.
