Research Statement

Dr. Caoimhe Clerkin received her PhD in Biopharmaceutics, in 2018, from the School of Pharmacy, Trinity College Dublin. Following this, she took up a position as a postdoctoral researcher within the Department of Molecular Medicine at the Royal College of Surgeons, Ireland. In 2019, she was appointed as a Lecturer within the School of Pharmacy at China Medical University- Queen’s University Belfast Joint College (CQC), located in Shenyang, People’s Republic of China. Here, Caoimhe contributes to the development of new and innovative curricula for pharmaceutical and biotechnology students. As a result, Caoimhe is involved in pedagogical research to understand the attitude of students towards various biological sciences, which has thepotential tofoster a commitment to life-long education in students, to help them to work efficiently and effectively within a multi-disciplinary team, and provide them with the required skills to become world leaders in healthcare provision. 

 

Caoimhe’s scientific research is interdisciplinary and built around the key themes of medicinal chemistry and drug transportation. Her research utilises modern biotechnology to understand the expression and activity of key transporter proteins and their role in the  pathology of various inflammatory diseases. 

 

Caoimhe is an active member of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientist (AAPS), the American Physiological Society and COST Action. Caoimhe is also the proud recipient of Trinity College Post-graduate Scholarship which aims to merit students based on academic merit.
