Niall Barron obtained a BA(Mod) in Microbiology from Trinity College Dublin and PhD in Applied Microbiology/Biochemistry from the University of Ulster. He spent three years at Baylor College of Medicine as a postdoctoral scientist working on genome engineering strategies to study nuclear steroid receptor function. He then returned to Ireland to work on stem cell engineering at Dublin City University. Subsequently, as a senior scientist in DCU, he was instrumental in growing the mammalian cell engineering group with a specific focus on the production of recombinant therapeutic proteins. He was appointed NIBRT Principal Investigator and Professor of Biochemical Engineering in the School of Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering in UCD in 2017.
