Research Assistant


Research Assistant (2 years)

Lung diseases are now one of the commonest causes of death and disability worldwide and are increasing in incidence.  Fibrotic lung diseases have a particularly poor prognosis.  At present there are no diagnostic markers identified in peripheral blood or tissue samples that are routinely available to predict outcome and permit disease progress to be easily monitored.  This represents a major unmet health need both in Ireland and worldwide This project is jointly funded by the Health Research Board and Science Foundation Ireland, and will focus on the development of new diagnostic methods in these diseases based on our recent identification of the bone morphogenetic antagonist gremlin as an important mediator of chronic hypoxic lung diseases. 

Approaches used will include phage display techniques, advanced imaging, and cell and molecular techniques together with confirmatory studies in vivo and in vitro models, in clinical samples.  The project is also supported by a postdoctoral researcher, with whom the successful candidate will interact closely.
