About Us:

David Henshall’s team became interested in the role of microRNAs in epilepsy in early 2007. Their research to date has featured microRNAs expression profiling studies in animal models and human brain tissue as well as functional studies, and the team has published 13 articles on the topic to date. Catherine Mooney joined the team in 2014 to tackle the ever-increasing bioinformatics challenges of research in this field. Based at RCSI in Dublin, the group are the Coordinators of EpimiRNA (see www.epimirna.eu), a large-scale collaborative project funded under the 7th Framework programme that brings together multiple academic and commercial groups to explore the role of microRNAs in the pathogenesis, treatment and diagnosis of epilepsy.
