Research Profile

Roisin Kelly

Biography

Dr. Roisin Kelly-Laubscher is a Lecturer in Pharmacology & Therapeutics at University College Cork, Ireland. Her Ph.D. research focused on arterial hemodynamics, the arterial endothelium, and the endothelial glycocalyx. In 2006, she started a postdoctoral position at the Hatter Institute for Cardiovascular Research at the University of Cape Town (UCT) where she worked under the guidance of Prof. Lionel H Opie and Prof. Sandrine Lecour. From August 2009- Feb 2018, she was appointed to an academic post at UCT. While there her research focused on the role of ethanolamine and the endothelial glycocalyx in cardioprotection. More recently, she has begun to focus on cardioprotection in drug-induced cardiotoxicity.

Research Interests

Dr. Roisin Kelly-Laubscher’s research focuses on the identification and development of cardioprotective agents for the treatment of cardiac pathologies. To do this she uses cellular and preclinical models of cardiac pathology including; myocardial infarction, drug induced cardiotoxicity and cardiac hypertrophy. Through her research she has identified ethanolamine as a novel cardioprotective agent in myocardial infarction. Her current research focuses on the delineation of the mechanisms of this protection. A better understanding of how ethanolamine protects the heart may lead to the identification of more specific drug targets.

Another aspect of her current research centres on the identification of novel cardioprotective agents that can minimise the damage caused by anti-cancer drugs. More and more people are surviving cancer due to early detection methods and better treatment options. Unfortunately, many of the drugs used to treat cancer can also damage the heart and so there is a need for cardioprotective agents that can protect the heart during cancer treatment. 
 
Dr Kelly-Laubscher welcomes enquires from students interested in discussing MSc or PhD opportunities and post-doctoral researchers wishing to join the research group. If you would like to discuss such possibilities, please contact me on roisinkelly@ucc.ie
