Personal Information
Name Murphy, Paula
Main Department Zoology
College Title Associate Professor
College Tel +353 1 896 3780
Paula Murphy's research interests are in the genetic regulation of embryonic development, and she has been carrying out research in this field since starting postgraduate studies towards her doctoral degree in 1987. The relationship between gene expression patterns and gene function has been a prominent part of her work, and detailed expression analysis is one of her specialisations. She currently focuses this interest on development of the limbs and facial region of vertebrate embryos.
