Stephanie Slevin

Postdoctoral Scientist

I have always been interested in Biology especially in Immunology and mechanisms of disease pathogenesis. I carried out my undergraduate degree at the University College of Cork (UCC) where I specialised in Physiology. I then undertook a Masters in Regenerative Medicine at the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG) identifying monocyte subpopulations in Diabetes and Obesity. I was awarded a PhD scholarship by Molecular Medicine Ireland under the Clinical and Translational Research Scholars Programme at NUIG and my research investigated the acute effects of anti-TNF therapy on peripheral blood mononuclear cells in IBD.

Current project:
