Research Profile

Kathleen Quane

Biography

Kathleen Quane received a MB BCh BAO from University College Cork Medical School in 1989. She obtained a PhD in Molecular Biology from the National University of Ireland (University College Cork) in 1995. She worked as a postdoctoral researcher in molecular biology at the Department of Biochemistry, University College Cork ( 1995-1996) and set up a human genetics research group to investigate of the genetics of common disorders at the Department of Medicine, University College Cork (1996-1998). In 1998 she was appointed as Wellcome Trust / Health Research Board ‘New blood' Research Lecturer for the investigation of the genetics of inflammatory bowel disease at the Department of Medicine at University College, Cork.

In 2003, she took up the position of lecturer in the Department of Anatomy at University College, Cork. She is involved in teaching anatomy to medical (FM1001, FM1002, FM1003, FM2001, FM2002, FM2005), nursing (AN1010), occupational therapy (AN1060) and science (AN3006) students.
