CONNECT PhD researcher Louise McGrath from Tyndall National Institute in Cork will participate in the final of Researchfest which takes place as part Inspirefest 2019.

Researchfest provides a platform to PhD candidates to present their work succinctly and in terms understandable to a non-specialist audience.
