Kidney Disease and Telomeres

Tiernan Coulter, the first ever recipient of the Northern Ireland Kidney Research Fund Janet Greeves Legacy Training Grant, completed an 8-week studentship under the supervision of Dr Claire Hill and Professor Amy Jayne McKnight.

Tiernan was able to develop a wide range of technical lab skills that will be of benefit to him while studying his Master’s degree in Genomics. The studentship focused on Exploring New Approaches for Telomere Associations with Kidney Disease – see infographic below with key information from the research completed.
