Description:
The 9% increase in health research funding provided to the HRB in 1995 enabled the Board to generate some new research activity and to launch additional initiatives. Four new Research Units were launched and the Directors of these Units, in conjunction with their talented medical and scientific staff, will address important areas of significant scientific, social and economic importance. These include a unit on Heart and Vascular Disease headed by Professor Desmond FitzGerald of RCSI, Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Professor Fergus Shanahan UCC, Cystic Fibrosis led by Dr. Clare O'Connor UCD, Adhesion Molecule Research led by Dr. Dermot Kelleher TCD. These Units directed by internationally recognised medical scientific leaders in Ireland were awarded following the Board's customary rigorous system of international peer review carried out by noted experts in the individual fields of expertise featured in the Unit grants. The Board has high expectations of significant productive output by these talented groups which will contribute to scientific excellence and eventually to improve disease diagnosis and patient care. In line with the Board's policy of entering into selected co-funding arrangements with other research bodies, a special conjoint HRB/Irish Heart Foundation Cardiovascular Diseases Research Unit was nominated, led by Professor Ian Graham of the Department of Cardiology of the Adelaide Hospital who will conduct research on the highly topical area of the newly discovered risk factor for cardiac and vascular disease - homocysteine.
