Deirdre Murray PhD
Dr Deirdre Murray graduated from UCC in 1995 and trained in Pediatrics in Dublin, before specialising Pediatric Intensive Care in leading International Pediatric Hospitals: the Royal Bristol Children’s Hospital and the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. She returned to Ireland to persue a dedicated research post and completed the first PhD in the Department of Pediatrics, UCC in June 2008. This thesis focussed on early continuous EEG in neonatal brain injury.
She took up her post as Senior Lecturer in the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health in 2008 and has developed her research interest into early brain injury and neurodevelopmental outcome since that time. Her aim is to improve long term neurological outcome through improved detection, prediction and early intervention following neonatal brain injury.
