Niamh McNamara

Niamh is a Tissue Repair PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. She completed an undergraduate degree in Biomedical, Health and Life Sciences at University College Dublin, during which she completed a research project on obesity, and three summer internships in the Research & Development department of Boston Scientific Corporation, Galway, where she researched aortic valve replacement stents. She also spent a placement at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, where she investigated bone regeneration, sparking an interest in regenerative medicine.
Following a volunteer placement at a clinic for children with cerebral palsy in Nansana, Uganda, she became particularly interested in understanding brain development, and how developmental processes might be harnessed for repair following injury to the infant brain, and joined the Miron group in Edinburgh as a result.
