'Does this range make me normal?' - Verification of Reference Interval's - Thursday, 22nd April 1pm.

 

Shane Duignan

Shane Duignan 

Presented by Shane Duignan,  graduated from DIT Kevin Street in 2015 and completed his MSc in Clinical Chemistry from TCD in 2019. Shane spent over 5 years working in the Mater hospital in the biochemistry laboratory and for about 2.5 of those years worked as a POCT scientist also. He then moved to CHI at Temple Street in December 2020 where he currently works as a senior scientist in the Metabolic laboratory.

'Does this range make me normal?' - Verification of Reference Interval's

In accord with ISO15189:2012, it is the responsibility of each laboratory to use reference intervals (RI's) that are appropriate to the methodologies and the populations that they serve. Accordingly, a laboratory needs to periodically asses the relevance and appropriateness of RI's and various methods have been described. The aim of this presentation is to compare and critique such verification methods and establish a robust yet sufficiently pragmatic approach to verifying the appropriateness of RI's.

Open to ACSLM Members (Free) and Non-members (€30).

Webinar - Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell Therapy in Paediatric ALL – a potential curative treatment for relapsed/ refractory disease - Tuesday 23rd March 2021 at 1pm

Zoom Webinar 23rd March @1pm via Zoom

Paul Lynam 

Chief Medical Scientist in the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Laboratory (HSCT) in Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin since 2009.  The HSCT laboratory in Crumlin Hospital services the National Paediatric Allogeneic and Autologous Haematopoietic Stem cell transplant programs in Haematology/ Oncology from a dedicated Clean room facility within the Pathology Department.  The HSCT laboratory is licenced by the HPRA and accredited by JACIE. 

Abstract

Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR) T cell Therapy in Paediatric ALL – a potential curative treatment for relapsed/ refractory disease.

 Outcomes for paediatric patients diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia have dramatically improved over the past few decades with upwards of 80% of patients being cured with chemotherapy alone. There remains a cohort of patients (15-20%), however, who present with refractory disease or who suffer disease relapse during treatment.  Allogeneic Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) is the preferred treatment option for high-risk patients who achieve a second complete response post relapse but the prognosis for those who are not eligible for HSCT or for those that relapse post-HSCT remains very poor.  Immunotherapies such as CAR-T therapy have emerged as a strategy to treat refractory or relapsed paediatric ALL .  CAR-T therapy utilises a patient’s own T cells by genetically modifying them to specifically target and destroy malignant cells. Very promising results have been observed using this technology with remission rates as high as 90% reported in some trials. Introduction of CAR-T therapy as a treatment option for relapsed or refractory paediatric ALL patients offers hope for a patient cohort with otherwise very limited treatment options.

Webinar: Celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science, 11th February 2021.

Celebrating International Day of Women and Girls in Science, 11th February 2021

Since its establishment by the UN General Assembly on 22nd December 2015, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science aims at raising awareness on the issue, celebrating women’s excellence in science and reminding the international community that science and gender equality have to advance hand-in-hand to address major global challenges and achieve all the goals and targets of the 2030 Agenda.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the critical role of women researchers and scientists in different stages of the fight against COVID-19, from advancing the knowledge on the virus to developing technics for testing and finally the vaccine against the virus.

Over 75% of #medicalscientists are women. The Academy acknowledges the critical role of #medicalscientists and all laboratory staff in the nation’s fight against COVID-19. We take the opportunity on International Day of Women and Girls in Science to pay tribute to them.

In our President’s Prize Competition, for the best Undergraduate Student Research over the past ten years seven out of the winners have been women. The 2020 prize winner was Clíona O’Shea from Cork Institute of Technology (now Munster Technological University).

Webinar Thursday 11th February 13:00

Open to Academy members and non-members. Booking essential. Register: www.acslm

Barriers to Women in research

Dr Anne Mac Lellan, FACSLM, Surveillance Scientist, Connolly Hospital, Dublin

 

Dr. Anne Mac Lellan

 For more than 2000 years, the participation of women in research, and, more widely, in the public sphere outside the home, has been controversial. Some 300 years before the birth of Christ, Aristotle, the famous philosopher, was of the opinion that the physical texture of women’s brains made women incapable of rational thought. Fast forward to 2020 when two women shared the Nobel prize in chemistry. This win made headlines because of their groundbreaking research into the so-called genetic scissors, CRISPR, and because it was the first time two women won this prize without having to share it with a man. One of the researchers Jennifer Doudna said that she hoped that this had broken the glass ceiling so that in future it is not surprising that two women or more win awards

 

 

Investigation of the ability of the bacteriocin nisin to inhibit
coagulase negative Staphylococci

Clíona O’Shea BSc, MACSLM, Medical Scientist, Molecular Microbiology,
Children’s Hospital Ireland @ Crumlin

Cliona O'Shea

Coagulase negative Staphylococci (CoNS) are ubiquitous colonisers of human skin. While previously seen as harmless commensals, CoNS are now viewed as opportunistic pathogens and are reported to be the leading cause of infections related to implanted medical devices. Of particular concern, is the increasing development of resistance to conventional antibiotics. Furthermore, CoNS can form biofilms that aid adherence to biotic or abiotic surfaces, and biofilms are inherently refractory to treatment with antibiotics. As the number of medical device implantation surgeries is projected to increase, owing to the ageing population and improving healthcare in developing countries, alternative approaches to control CoNS are therefore urgently required. The present study investigates the ability of the natural microbially-produced peptide bacteriocin nisin to inhibit CoNS.

Webinar:Traditional and Novel Haematology Parameters as Predictive Tools in COVID-19 Wednesday 9th December at 1pm

Traditional and Novel Haematology Parameters as Predictive Tools in COVID-19.

 

Abstract: 

The COVID-19 pandemic is an extraordinary threat to global public health, caused by a novel coronavirus. Although the majority of COVID-19 cases are asymptomatic or mild, this novel coronavirus has the potential to cause severe, life-threatening infection. 

 

The Medical Laboratory is recognised to play a critical role in the diagnosis and management of COVID-19. More recently, the role of the Haematology Laboratory in particular has been emphasised in the scientific literature. Herein, we discuss the emergence and pathophysiology of COVID-19, as well as the traditional and the novel Haematology parameters that predict the onset and the severity COVID-19.
