Congratulations to Shane Crinion who came 3rd in an Autism Research Thesis in Three competition which took place on World Autism Day, 2nd April in aid of AsIAm. The aim of the event was to showcase the impactful work ongoing in the Irish autism research community on World Autism Awareness Day 2021.
The “Thesis in Three” is an exciting competition that encourages researchers to communicate their work through concise delivery without the use of jargon. Early-career autism researchers in Universities around the country participated in the “Thesis in Three” competition and it was publicly accessible to a wide audience, including autistic individuals, interested family members, healthcare providers and anybody wanting to find out about autism research in Ireland.
Shane is a PhD Student in Dr. Derek Morris’s group at NUI Galway and his research involves exploring the causal relationship between neuropsychiatric disorders and circadian rhythm using a statistical approach called Mendelian randomisation.
