Copy, Inflammatory Lung Disease, Proposed workshop on inflammatory diseases of the lung.Includes clinicians presenting on their specific disease type to fundamental scientists.Objectives :To build links between fundamental and clinican scientistsTo look for opportunities for trans-institutional collaborationTo connect senior post-docs (emerging PI's) with clinician counterpart
Description of Research Interests
Since my appointment as Consultant Immunologist to St. James's Hospital and the former Federated Dublin Voluntary Hospitals (now Tallaght or AMNiCH hospital), I developed clinical and research interests in the following areas: PRIMARY IMMUNODEFICIENCY DISORDERS AUTOIMMUNE DISORDERS, IN PARTICULAR CONNECTIVE TISSUE DISEASES WEGENER'S GRANULOMATOSIS COELIAC DISEASE. Since 1982, a busy clinical and laboratory Immunology service has evolved. The laboratory currently performs investigations on some 80,000 specimens per annum. A busy outpatient and daycare facility was established. In excess of 60 patients with primary immunodeficiency states attend the clinic and a home based therapy has been developed for patients with immunoglobulin deficiency states. Research has focused in particular on auto-immune disorders, with coeliac disease as the principal interest. However, research into other disorders including primary immunodeficiency states also continues.
