Sinead McKeon

Year of Graduation 2014: BSc Science Education

I am currently studying for a Masters in Immunology at the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute (TBSI) at Trinity College Dublin.  I will graduate in September and begin a translational immunology PhD position in lung cancer research under the supervision of Professor Seamas Donnelly at the TBS.

While I didn't stay in teaching, the skill set that the B.Sc provided me with has really helped in my development as a scientist...  I think I'm the only one in my masters class not afraid of oral presentations.  Being a qualified teacher really impressed the supervisor during my interview for the PhD and it definitely helped in gaining the position.  Tell the up and coming classes that they will be prepared for any career they like after the course, both in Science and Education.
