Aileen is a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Gary Brennan.

The aim of her PhD is to explore the role of the transcriptional regulator SP1 in epilepsy in order to determine whether genes controlled by SP1 are involved in epilepsy-related comorbidities and whether inhibition of SP1 can alter epileptogenic pathways and prevent/block the development of epilepsy.

Prior to joining FutureNeuro, she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacology in UCD before becoming an intern in UCD Conway Institute.
