Assoc. Prof Kennedy is a medical academic at Trinity College Dublin (since 1984) with particular interest in nutrition and in coeliac disease. He runs the multi-disciplinary outpatient clinic at St James's Hospital (Dublin) for patients with coeliac disease (since 1995), in collaboration with consultants in the gastroenterology unit and with staff from the hospital department of clinical nutrition. He is (Honorary) President and an active board member of the Coeliac Society of Ireland (elected 2008). A founding member of the Irish Section of the Nutrition Society (1989), he subscribed to the incorporation (in 2010) of a multidisciplinary society in Ireland for health professionals with an interest in clinical nutrition (the Irish Society for Clinical Nutrition and Metabolism, IrSPEN), of which he was a director and former chairman of the education committee. He supervises undergraduate and postgraduate students researching topics spanning clinical nutrition, community nutrition and nutrition education, as well as contributing to multidisciplinary research into coeliac disease. As a member of the College community, he has served as a college tutor and contributed on numerous College committees at college, faculty, school and discipline levels. At international level, he participates in networks relating to coeliac disease (research and patient organisation groups) and to nutrition.
