About me

Sarah-Louise obtained her B.Sc. (Hons) in Genetics from University College Cork in Ireland in 2009. Her research at the BIOMERIT centre in UCC investigated bacterial-induced regulation of genes involved in Cystic Fibrosis. Upon completion of her undergraduate degree she relocated to London where her interest in translational science prompted her to undertake an MA in Medical Ethics and Law at King’s College.

Sarah-Louise returned to Ireland in 2011 and was hired as laboratory manager by Biocroi Ltd., a start-up biotechnology company based out of Trinity College Dublin. Her focus here was on 3D cell culture and high content imaging at the Irish National Centre for High Content Screening and Analysis (INCHSA), also based at Trinity.

In 2014 Sarah-Louise travelled to Brisbane to undertake a PhD with QUT as a member of the CARP group and the newly established Translational Cell Imaging Queensland (TCIQ) facility, based at TRI. Her project utilises 3D models of non-small cell lung cancer (NCSLC) to identifiy mechanisms of drug resistance in lung cancer.
