Dr Deirdre Murray
Dr Deirdre Murray's research strategy is to promote high quality paediatric research in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health. To do this, with the support of Prof Jonathan Hourihane, we have formed a collaborative research team which has recently received funding to establish the first Irish birth cohort and first neonatal biobank, the BASELINE study. This birth cohort will gather detailed information from 3000 Irish children as they grow and develop over several decades, with a large biobank of stored umbilical cord blood. Deirdre has recently been awarded a prestiguous HRB Clinician Scientist Award to validate biomarkers in hypoxic ischaemic encephalopathy through the BiHIVE study.
