Join us for research talks in the pub this Wednesday. PubhD is a monthly, free event that brings together PhD students and academics from every Dublin college across a range of disciplines to share their work in ten minute presentations, with an additional 20 minutes for friendly Q&A. The general public usually join too because it's good fun. Everyone is welcome!


It is a fantastic opportunity to share your research with a non-specialist audience, test new ideas ahead of a conference, and to meet students from the other universities. 

PubhD is on tomorrow, Wednesday, June 7th at 7pm in The Black Sheep (Parnell St/Capel St). 


Presenting their research this Wednesday 7th:


Laura McGrady is a first year PhD student in DCU. Recent developments in modern brain imagining technology have many implications for criminal investigation, the justice system and sentencing protocols. Her research is specifically concerned with the use of EEG technology for polygraph purposes and its admissibility in the court of law.


Stephen Maher is a James Ussher Assistant Professor in Translational Oncology, at the Department of Surgery in Trinity Translational Medicine Institute. He will present part of his research under the title "Radiotherapy - making stubborn cancers respond through genetic engineering".


Joanne Kenney recently completed her PhD in NUIG. Her research focuses on neuroimaging in psychiatry. Using magnetic resonance imaging, her research investigates brain images of people who were diagnosed with a psychotic condition to see if there are any subtle abnormalities in the structures of their brains.


If you would like to present your research just email us a short bio at and we'll put you on the waiting list!
