Prof. Dermot Kenny (MD, FACC, FRCPI, DABIM (Cardiovascular Disease)) is Professor of Cardiovascular Biology at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland where his primary research area is in understanding the mechanisms of thrombosis to advance clinical diagnostics. His research has been funded by the NIH, American Heart Association, Wellcome Trust, the HRB and Science Foundation Ireland. In 1998 Dermot returned to Dublin from the USA to head up the first academic Clinical Research Centre (CRC) in Ireland at RCSI.
