  • Title: History | NUI Galway Biochemistry 50
    Descriptive info: The Department of Biochemistry at University College Galway was established in 1963.. The first Chair was filled in 1963 by Prof.. Colm Ó hEocha, who went on to become President of the University in 1975.. For the first ten years of its existence Biochemistry was located in temporary buildings on campus, and in 1973, the Department moved to the then newly-opened Arts Science Building.. Prof.. Patrick F.. Fottrell was appointed to the Chair of Biochemistry in December 1976, and also went on to become President of the University in 1996.. University College Galway became autonomous in 1997 and was renamed National University of Ireland Galway.. Subsequently the Head of Department post was held by Prof.. Jim Gosling as Acting Head of Biochemistry from 1996 to 1997, by Prof.. Brian Walker from 1997 to 1998, and by Dr John Donlon as Acting Head of Biochemistry from 1998 to 2001.. Noel Lowndes, the current Established Professor of Biochemistry, was appointed in 2002 and acted as Head of Department until 2008.. Afshin Samali took over as Head of the Discipline of Biochemistry from 2008-2011, and the current Head of the Discipline is Dr.. Biochemistry became a Discipline within the School of Natural Sciences in the College of Science in 2007.. This brought it more closely together with other former departments, including Microbiology, Zoology, Botany and Plant Sciences, and Earth and Ocean Sciences.. The School of Natural Sciences was led by Prof.. Heinz-Peter Nasheuer of Biochemistry from 2008-2012, and is currently led by Prof.. Vincent O’Flaherty..  ...   courses involving study of Biochemistry each year.. In 2014, a total of 76 students majored in Biochemistry in their final year through the Science, Biotechnology and Biomedical Science programmes.. At the same time, Biochemistry hosts over 40 PhD students with 8-10 graduating each year.. The Discipline also introduced a novel MSc in Cancer Research in 2012 that combines a semester of taught courses with an intensive two-semester research project.. From its beginnings Biochemistry has always been highly active in research and had an ability to move with the times.. The current major research themes are in chromosome biology, apoptosis, enzymology and glycobiotechnology, and developmental biology.. Researchers have secured significant funding from national and international sources for this work, including for example from Science Foundation Ireland, Health Research Board, Wellcome Trust, Irish Cancer Society, DAFM, Enterprise Ireland, Teagasc, and EU programmes.. Today as ever, we continue to have a highly international research environment, with almost 100 staff members and research students coming from some 20 countries around the world.. We also engage in numerous international collaborations and continue to fly the flag of NUI Galway Biochemistry at international conferences.. Biochemistry remains a strong and dynamic discipline within NUI Galway.. It has had a history of colourful and energetic members, has provided many leaders of science locally, nationally and internationally, and has shown a remarkable ability to reinvent itself.. The many people who contributed to Biochemistry at NUI Galway during its first 50 years can take great pride in looking forward to the next 50..

  • Title: Biochemistry celebrates 50 years with symposium | NUI Galway Biochemistry 50
    Descriptive info: Biochemistry celebrated its 50 anniversary with a highly successful symposium and gala dinner on Thursday July 10th 2014.. Participants were welcomed by current Head of Discipline Dr Michael Carty, who was himself both an undergraduate and PhD student in Biochemistry.. The symposium was opened by Prof Frank Gannon who gave his own personal journey from Sligo, and how NUI Galway had coloured his direction around the world to his current role as head of the QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute in Brisbane, Australia.. Following on was Prof Barry Murphy, the first postgraduate student in the department who subsequently went on to leadership roles in Queens College Belfast and Creighton University in Nebraska.. He was able to explain how early interests in phycocyanin and phycoerythrin by Prof Colm O hEocha nucleated strengths in protein chemistry and affinity chromatography that underpinned the early history of Biochemistry.. Prof Rosemary O Connor gave her travelogue from undergraduate days in NUIG to bioscience and biotech in USA and back to UCC.. She gave a fascinating insight into the importance of insulin-like growth factor receptors in balancing the requirements and risks of cellular growth.. After coffee Prof Orla Conneely coloured the longstanding links between NUI Galway and Baylor College of Medicine, and the role played in cloning of nuclear receptors under the influence of Prof Bert O Malley there.. She gave both a passionate explanation of the value of mentorship and retaining connections, and a fascinating insight into how molecular screening platforms can be used to uncover potential therapies.. This was followed by Prof Oliver Dolly who gave another insightful story of an international career drawing on NUI Galway, but in his case focussed on how molecular understanding can enlighten  ...   given by explaining how his career starting as a trainee technician led to his determination to gain qualifications in Biochemistry, and the use of his expertise to establish an important clinical diagnostic assay.. Dr Richard Murphy of Alltech s European Research Centre in Dunboyne also reflected a longstanding link with Biochemistry.. Alltech has been linked with our department for many year both at the practical and academic levels.. His interest in selenium biology also illustrated the multi-faceted directions that biochemical research can take, and how deeply discovery research underpins industrial applications.. The penultimate talk by Prof Noel Lowndes placed one of the current major research focuses in Biochemistry into perspective when he outlined efforts in chromatin research.. Like many speakers before, this illustrated how the Department of Biochemistry has defied boundaries, in this case to combine traditional biochemistry with molecular and cellular biology in the understanding of cancer.. Finally, Biochemistry s latest academic recruit and former BSc Biotechnology graduate Elaine Dunleavy related her personal journey following the cell biology and epigenetics of chromosome structure at the centromere.. In the evening a Gala Dinner was held at the Ardilaun Hotel, with a pre-dinner address by Prof Pat Fottrell paying tribute to many of the characters of Biochemistry.. After dinner, Dr Pat Morgan rounded out the anniversary celebrations with more stories of the many people during her career in Biochemistry.. Both addresses reflected the personal enthusiasm of members of the department that has underpinned Biochemistry throughout its 50 year journey.. It is clear that Biochemistry at NUI Galway enters its second 50 years with the same indefatigable confidence and energy that it has approached its first 50.. admin.. 10/07/2014.. News..
