My Work

The Hepatology Unit based in Beaumont Hospital, Dublin is closely aligned to the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, and has strong research collaborative links with the Translational Gastroenterology Unit and the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine at the University of Oxford, UK, amongst others. The main goal of our research is to continuously strive to improve care for patients with progressive liver disease through insightful research, with a focus on outcome prediction and stratification in a variety of conditions including cirrhosis, alcohol related liver disease, Haemochromatosis, and alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency.

Potential Projects

Current collaborative research projects:
Iron and the microbiome in chronic liver disease
The effect of bariatric surgery on NASH resolution
Liver outcomes in alpha 1 antitrypsin deficiency
The impact of minimum unit pricing for alcohol on alcohol related liver disease and associated hospital burden
