SUMMER INTERN

Adam is a third year human genetics student who joined the lab in 2021 from Trinity College Dublin as a summer intern where he worked to help characterise innate genetic defense systems from isolates of Fusobacterium nucleatum. Adam has a keen interest in the field of gene therapy particularly in relation to targeting more complex, multifactorial diseases. He hopes to be able to carry out further studies in this area once he graduates in 2022.
