I’m Pearse, a 2nd year science student from Belfast currently studying for a BSc in Human Biology at Queen’s University Belfast. I am eager to learn about and engage with challenging, novel research and to work as part of a dedicated team of scientists.
I am delighted to have been successful in my application for this studentship, MS is a devastating disease that affects many people in Ireland and across the globe, including members of my own family. The AIMS-RN summer studentship is an amazing opportunity to be able to work collaboratively with a team of talented researchers who are focused on limiting MS progression through the use of innovative scientific methods.
My name is Niamh Walsh and I am currently in the third year of my undergraduate course studying Human Health and Disease in Trinity College, Dublin. So far, my studies have given me the opportunity to engage in a wide range of biomedical sciences and this has led me to acquire a specific interest in Neurology and Immunology.
I am delighted to have been awarded a summer studentship by the incredible team behind the AIMS research network. The mission of unifying and supporting MS researchers across the island of Ireland is inspirational and I am grateful to have been accepted to be a part of it. I aspire to become involved in the advances that have taken place in MS research within the last few years and I am hopeful that I will pursue a career in this area in the future.
I have just completed my final year of studies in Biomedical Science, specialising in Anatomy in NUI Galway.
My motivation to apply for this studentship stems from my long-established interest in neurodegenerative and inflammatory conditions, as such making Multiple Sclerosis research the ideal intersection between the two disciplines. My dedicated interest in MS specifically, stems from my previous studies of demyelinating disorders which have enhanced my understanding and intrigue, as well as my personal relations to sufferers of this disorder which have played a pivotal role in my reason for application to the AIMS-RN studentship.
I look forward to working with like-minded individuals this summer and am excited to have the opportunity to work with experts in this area of research.
