Overall purpose of this position 

The successful candidate will join the team of Prof David Henshall working on identifying novel treatments for Epilepsy. The purpose of the current role is to use multiple electrode array and patch-clamp electrophysiological techniques to identify anti-seizure actions of novel small and large molecules using in vitro models. This will include dissociated cell culture and brain slices from animal models, stem cell models and human brain. In collaboration with an industry partner, the researcher will have access to a novel compound library for screening these molecules. The project should advance from screening in cultured neurons through slices and ultimately provide leads for testing in appropriate preclinical models.

Position summary: 

FutureNeuro is seeking a suitably qualified scholar to conduct research on current and emerging eHealth regulation and governance. eHealth broadly describes the application of information and communication technology in healthcare such as electronic health records, mhealth, electronic patient portals, and telemedicine applications. eHealth is currently seen as a key enabler of quality and safety improvements in health care and services as well as an important facilitator for clinical research. While eHealth mediated clinical care and research brings many opportunities, it may also introduce new risks pointing to the need for attention to appropriate regulation and governance.

The FutureNeuro eHealth portfolio includes development and implementation of APIs for data exchange between devices and applications, data analytics and machine learning, clinical trials of eHealth solutions, development of clinical decision support tools. The successful candidate will work collaboratively with the multidisciplinary FutureNeuro programme team whose members represent academia, clinical care and industry partners from centres across Ireland.
