Research

About my research:

My name is Gordon Cooke and welcome to my site no matter how you arrived. I am a lecturer in biological sciences and I am also an active  research scientist. I completed my PhD in 2004 in IT Tallaght before being appointed as a Newman Scholar in UCD where I undertook research into Barrett’s Metaplasia. After two years in UCD I went travelling with my wife across Russia, on the trans Mongolian railway then in to Mongolia and China, South East Asia and Australia before ending up in New Zealand where I worked in the School of Nursing at the University of Auckland as a Research Assistant. I then returned to Ireland after a year and went to work for Prof. Seamas Donnelly in UCD. Here I was involved in a number of SFI Program Grant Projects looking into various fibrotic diseases of the respiratory system including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis and cystic fibrosis. I then worked for a year with Prof. Michael Keane’s group where I gained an interest in exosomes and their role in disease.

Since joining Technological University Dublin in August 2016 I’ve had a chance to develop my own research interests. Together with my colleague Dr. Emma Caraher, I now supervise 3 postgraduate researchers. You can find more info about our group, my publications and our research at the links below. Get in touch if you think we could collaborate.
