Biography

Dr O’Grady gained his B.Sc. in Microbiology, his M.Sc. (Res) in infectious diseases diagnostics and his Ph.D. in the molecular diagnosis of pathogens in food all at the National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG). He remained at NUIG for his first post-doc, continuing his research in food microbiology. This was followed by a two year stint in industry (Beckman Coulter) developing real-time PCR based tests for infectious diseases including tuberculosis (TB). Dr O’Grady then returned to academia, taking up a post-doc position at University College London on TB diagnostics. In January 2013 he was appointed Lecturer in Medical Microbiology at UEA and was promoted to Senior Lecturer in August 2016. His research continues to focus on the rapid molecular diagnosis of pathogens with the aim of translating this research broadly, in different sectors and diseases, to maximise community/patient benefit.
