INSPIRE lecture series

The UCC School of Medicine INSPIRE lecture series brings subject matter experts from across UCC School of Medicine to share their knowledge, exchange information and collaborate with our Year 1 medical students.  For this monthly series, leading doctors, researchers, and clinicians based in UCC School of Medicine and affiliated institutions are invited by faculty to speak about their area of expertise and their ongoing research programme(s). The goal of the series is to highlight UCC-led advances in research, technology, emerging best practices, with a view to, ultimately, improving patient care and outcomes.
