• McCoy lab led by Claire organize MS World Day 2018 at RCSI .
In recognition of World MS Day, Dr. Claire McCoy together with organizers from Trinity College Dublin, MS Society Ireland and Novartis joined to create an MS Research Network event, on the 30th of May. The aim of the event was to establish an official researcher network to enhance collaboration, visibility, and congeniality for scientists working on MS in Ireland.
Dr. Claire McCoy and her lab organized the event at RCSI. The day started off with a bake sale (massive thank you to Bretzel Bakery for their donations!) at the RCSI foyer where we managed to raise 309 euro for MS Ireland!! Go team!!!
The day at RCSI involved a series of talks by experts in the field of MS research including our own Dr. McCoy as pictured below:
During the evening, the venue was shifted to the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute, where Conor and Remsha presented a lab poster showcasing McCoy research:
Claire also gave a lovely talk on the importance of research to an audience that constituted of other researchers, MS patients and general public:
