NUI awards two degrees on published work



Dr Mary Murphy Doctor of Science (DSc)
Professor Michael Solomon Doctor of Medicine (DMed)

A graduate of UCC, Dr Mary Murphy is a senior lecturer in Regenerative Medicine and a Principal Investigator in Orthobiologics at the Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) at NUI Galway. Reflecting the focu of her research interests, Dr Murphy’s published work is concerned with the development of new biological solutions for untreatable conditions. A major part of this effort is the use of adult stem cells for tissue regeneration in arthritic diseases and cardiac applications and the use of a range of strategies to understand the biology, mechanism of action and the therapeutic effectiveness of these cells.

A graduate of RCSI, Professor Michael Solomon is Professor of Surgical Research at the University of Sydney, Academic Head, Department of Colorectal Surgery and Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at the Royal Price Alfred Hospital, Sydney. His published work based on his research is concerned with the assessment of surgical outcomes and clinical trials involving operations in colorectal surgery and particularly the assessment of minimally invasive surgery, particularly in the areas of rectal endometriosis, ileocolic Crohn’s disease, defunctioning stomas and rectal prolapse.

NUI degrees on published work are higher doctorates and are the highest qualifications awarded by the University. They are awarded to scholars who have, over a sustained period, published a substantial body of ground-breaking and influential work in a field of specialisation and who have achieved outstanding distinction internationally in that field.
