Personal profile

Particulars

Dr Tansey is Director of the Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education. 

I am a scientist and an educator. My area of expertise is human physiology: the study of how the body functions. I studied Natural Sciences at university in Trinity College Dublin, encompassing biology, chemistry and mathematics and gaining foundational knowledge in a range of scientific disciplines. I eventually chose physiology as my area of specialist interest, graduated with a first Class Honours degree in 2000, and subsequently pursued my doctoral studies in cardiovascular physiology. Apart from holding the Directorship of the Centre for Biomedical Sciences Education at Queen’s University Belfast, I am a Reader in Physiology Education with over 20 years' subject expertise.
