Episode 23: Dr Muireann Irish discusses women in science

Dr Muireann Irish has been awarded one of four L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women In Science fellowships for her research work in Alzheimer’s disease. The NeuRA researcher has shown that people with dementia don’t just lose the ability to remember the past but also the ability to envisage the future. In this podcast, we discuss Muireann’s research on memory and imagination, her recent L’Oréal award and her advice to women who aspire to be in science.
