Prof McNicholas is a seasoned clinician and researcher, with over 200 publications and recipient of multiple grants. She has extensive international training, and over 25 years clinical practice, with clinical roles in CAMHS and CHI, Crumlin making her very much at the interface between hospital and community medicine. As such her research is predominantly translation, and in the area of service delivery and evaluation. She has been a strong advocate for accessible services and aware of the associated stress among clinicians working in under resourced services, with increasing demands, very much mirroring the situation with COVID19. Past and current projects include transition from child to adult services, access to emergency care, occupational stress and research in clinical disorders such as eating disorders, ADHD, 22q11DS and liaison psychiatry. She has a strong network of successful local and international collaborations, a track record of leading and successfully completing grants.
