Prof S McConkey

Professor Sam J. McConkey joined in January 2005 and leads the clinical Infectious Disease & Tropical Medicine service at Beaumont Hospital - the main teaching hospital for RCSI. Travellers may also opt for care in Our Lady's Hospital, Drogheda, which has a long tradition of providing Tropical Medicine service linked to RCSI.

In the past, he worked as Head of Viral Disease Research Section in MRC Laboratories in The Gambia and previous to that in Oxford University and in Washington University in St Louis. His research interests are in vaccine development, HIV2, hepatitis B, HIV1, HTLV1, malaria and tuberculosis. Understanding the context of disease and health care using multidisciplinary methods may prove the way for more effective interventions, so recently three new research projects in this area have been commenced.
