Therese Holton

Scientific Officer

Therese, who completed her BSc in 2007 and a 2011 PhD in Genetics and Bioinformatics, credits Maynooth with giving her both the education and personal experiences that helped her get where she is today.

Therese also met her husband, Ronan Anglin (’08 Computer Science grad) at Maynooth, and has developed close friendships through the Galway Cycle, which she has done for several years

“The Biology Department really instilled the importance of basic research, along with encouraging us to take education further – that I really could do a PhD afterwards. It’s fantastic to promote that belief in yourself. I don’t know if it’s the same at other universities, but I really got that sense from Biology Department at Maynooth.”
