Graduated from the Dublin Institute of Technology with a Certificate and Diploma in Biomedical Science in 1982 and then a Fellowship in Clinical Chemistry from the Institute of Biomedical Science in 1986. I graduated from Dublin City University in 1990 with an MSc in Instrumental Analysis and my M.Sc. thesis was on "The development of a non-isotopic immunoassay for Thyroxine."

I worked for approximately 20 years as a medical scientist in St. James's Hospital and subsequently in the Adelaide and Meath Hospital incorporating the National Children's Hospital. I also worked in the Ibn El Bitar Hospital in Bagdad, Iraq for an interesting two years (1982-1984).
