Welcome to the latest issue of our Newsletter.
In this issue, I am pleased to inform you that a report by the bibliometrics company CWTS in Leiden described the APC Microbiome Institute as being at the forefront of a ‘hot’ field of science, namely microbiome research. This reinforces APC’s strategy of conducting fundamental academic research of commercial relevance in partnership with industry, because this strategy delivers high-quality research outputs with real impact.
I would like to welcome Jill Haynes who joins APC Microbiome Institute as our new EU Grants Manager. I would also like to welcome Casey Kavanagh, an incoming Research Fellow from Janssen, who has received a Science Foundation Ireland Industry Fellowship and will join Niall Hyland’s group for 6 months to study obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Welcome also to the many summer students who are getting their first taste of research at the APC.
If you are in need of some summer reading why not catch up on the latest on “The Gut-Brain Axis” by checking out Niall Hyland & Catherine Stanton’s new book or pick up a copy of Seamus O’Mahony’s thoughtful book “The Way We Die Now”.
And do enter our Competition to win one of our brand new APC Microbiome Institute T-shirts!
