Award: Fulbright Irish Student - All Disciplines
Institution: Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
James O’Siorain is a PhD candidate in circadian immunology at the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. He discovered his passion for scientific research while completing his B.A. (Hons) degree in immunology at Trinity College Dublin in 2018. His doctoral research examines how the body clock regulates immune responses, and how body clock disruption contributes to inflammatory disease. As a Fulbright awardee, James will visit the University of Cincinnati where he will explore the use of circadian systems biology and circadian medicine, to understand how body clock disruption is driving inflammatory disease.
