Roisin McMackin Passes Her Viva
Congratulations to Roisin McMackin of Trinity College Dublin for successfully passing her viva with no corrections. Roisin's thesis, Human Neurodegeneration: A Spectral EEG and TMS based Approach in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, was carried out at the Academic Unit of Neurology, Trinity College Dublin, under the supervision of Dr Bahman Nasseroleslami and Professor Richard Carson.
In 2020, Roisin McMackin was awarded the Brainbox Initiative Research Challenge Award for her fantastic proposed study investigating motor and cognitive cortical network dysfunction-based biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases - a study that she is planning to start work on in mid-2021 using a range of DuoMAG TMS equipment and the Brainsight TMS Navigation system provided by Brainbox.
We are exceptionally pleased to hear this news of Roisin's ongoing success and pass on our greatest congratulations, and we look forward to following her future work and research.
