Infant Welcomes Dr. Peter Barrett

The Wellcome-HRB Irish Clinical Academic Training Programme (ICAT) has welcomed its first intake of fellows at an induction event, held recently at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

We are delighted to announce that Dr. Peter Barrett, ICAT fellow, has been appointed to UCC and will begin a year of academic and specialist training with Infant with Dr. Ali Khashan.

Research Excellence

Prof. Louise Kenny’s presentation at the induction event highlighted Infant’s commitment to developing the careers of talented young researchers. Peter will work with Dr. Ali Khashan in the Epidemiology research team and will also be mentored by Dr. Deirdre Murray, who was selected by ICAT as a model of research excellence.

Peter will take part in a diverse educational scheme which includes project work and clinical training.


Emerging Science

The ICAT programme supports emerging science excellence in Ireland by guiding ICAT fellows towards a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training.

Infant are proud to support the growth of clinical expertise in Ireland and we look forward to working with Peter!
