Patricia Maguire
Dr Patricia Maguire is a Senior Lecturer in Biochemistry in the School of Biomolecular and Biomedical Science at University College Dublin.

Dr Maguire’s research interests are in transcriptional and proteomic analysis and the dissection of Wnt pathways in platelets and the cardiovascular system.
She combines classical cell biology approaches and proteomic analysis to delineate novel biochemical pathways in platelets, including discovery of platelet Wnt signalling and its role in thrombotic responses as well as novel platelet functions.

Dr Maguire works with Java Clinical on biochemical analyses and a Java Research and Development project exploring platelet biomarkers using proteomic analysis of clinical samples.
