UCD IMAGINE SCIENCE SCIENCE EXPRESSION INITIATIVE
Evin O’Neill is currently final year film student at IADT in Dublin, Ireland. He worked with Dr Emmanuel Reynaud, UCD Biology & Environment Science. Dr. Reynaud’s studies how the capacity of a single bacteria excretion to form complex tissue secretion ability in an organism context. He currently focuses on the epithelia functions at the molecular level within artificial epithelial tissues (lung, kidney, gut¿) to create optimal conditions for cell biology and molecular approaches as well as drug screening on specifically targeted functions: protein expressing defect (cystic fibrosis, lung), water retention (kidney diseases), tumor formation (Epithelial Mesenchymal Transition EMT, metastasis.) and infections.
