The President of Dublin City University, Prof. Brian MacCraith and the Interim Director of the National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology, Dr. Donal O’Gorman invite you to attend the Inaugural lecture by Adjunct Prof. Richard Murphy:

Minerals, meals and molecular malnutrition

How mineral form affects cellular health

Prof. Murphy is Director of Research at Alltech's European Bioscience Centre.

After graduating with a B.Sc. in Biochemistry in 1994 from NUI Galway, he received a research scholarship from Alltech and completed his Ph.D in the Dept. of Biochemistry NUI Galway in 1999. His doctoral research focused on the production of enzymes of industrial importance.

Following a move to Dunboyne, his research focused on the physicochemical characterization of organic trace elements and minerals in addition to microbial fermentation technologies. His current research interests and activities are diverse and include such areas as differentiation of organic trace elements, microbiomics, cellular biotechnology and in more recent times the area of nutrigenomics.
