New Addition to Shannon ABC Science Team

Patrick Quille was recently awarded the position of Research Assistant with Shannon ABC. Patrick graduated from UCC in 2007 with an honours degree in Chemistry of Pharmaceutical Compounds.

Patrick has previously been employed in pharmaceutical company Astellas as a process technician and in Shannon ABC as a biochemical technician. More recently Patrick completed an MSc by research at the Institute of Technology, Tralee on a project entitled ‘The preparation of an alginate with a hydrophobic moiety that retains its biocompatibility and immunosuppressive properties while remaining suitable for cellular encapsulation.’

Patrick will be based in our laboratory facilities in the South Campus of IT, Tralee and will be applying his experience and expertise to the use of bioassays to assess the different components of seaweed, and how seasonality may affect this.
