Dr. Graeme Sullivan received an Entrance Exhibition Scholarship Award from Trinity College Dublin (TCD) in 2001 and successfully completed B.A. B.Dent.Sc. degrees in Dental Science in 2006. After a number of years in clinical practice he returned to work in the molecular cell biology laboratory of Prof. Seamus Martin (TCD). He was awarded a prestigious GOIPG IRC Scholarship Award to pursue these studies and obtained his Ph.D. in 2018. During his doctoral studies, Graeme published nine original research articles in international peer-reviewed scientific journals, three as first-author and is a co-inventor on an approved patent. Underpinning his research career thus far is an intellectual curiosity examining the interplay between (a) cell death, (b) cell stress and (c) inflammation in health and disease.
Graeme joined Dr. Ní Chonghaile’s research group in 2021 and he is now employed as a post-doctoral researcher with funding from Leukemia Research Foundation.
