EMBO Short-term Fellowship 1997
F.S. Stewart prize (Awarded by Dept. of Microbiology, TCD, for highest grade in moderatorship exam) 1994
Irish Division of International Association of Dental Research (IADR) Elida Gibbs Award 1998
My research interests focus on oral microbiology, including: 1) The pathogenic yeast Candida albicans, responsible for oral and systemic fungal infections - I am interested in the control of filamentation in this fungus and investigating the genetic basis for its superior virulence compared to the closely related species Candida dubliniensis 2) The periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis. We have started a project investigating the role of the Hag genes, encoding non-fimbrial adhesins in this organism, responsible for periodontal disease.
