Biography: Judith obtained her PhD from Department of Clinical Pharmacology, RCSI in 2004 before undertaking postdoctoral training at the Scripps Research Institute, San Diego, on new folding mechanisms in Cystic Fibrosis.  In 2011, she joined the University of California, San Diego as a faculty member before receiving an SFI award and returning to Ireland. In 2013 she became a Principal investigator at University College Dublin where she set up basic/translational research programs in Cystic Fibrosis and Cancer (lung/breast). Judith’s overall research has focused on using omics based approached to decipher protein interaction networks dysregulated in disease and identify new therapeutics to target these pathways. Her research projects includes examining the therapeutic restoration of CFTR using kinase inhibitors in Cystic Fibrosis and investigating BAG3 as a therapeutic target regulating EGFR signalling transduction pathways in TNBC. Dr. Coppinger joins RCSI and National Children’s Research Center as a Principal Investigator and Senior Lecturer in the Department of Molecular and Cellular Therapeutics (MCT), March 2017.
