[Science Espresso 1] Professor Mary McCarron

Science Espressos are a series of talks running alongside the SPARKS exhibition at Science Gallery Dublin throughout January and February, offering visitors the chance to get up close and personal with experts representing different areas of health research. 

The first talk in the series takes place at 6.30pm on Tuesday, 9th January and features Trinity College Dublin’s Mary McCarron, Professor of Ageing and Intellectual Disability at Trinity’s School of Nursing, and is part of the official launch of SPARKS in Science Gallery Dublin.

Mary will be talking about the SPARKS local case study, which showcases the work of the Intellectual Disability Supplement to The Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing (IDS-TILDA) at Trinity College Dublin. This study, the first of its kind in the world, directly compares the ageing experience of people with an intellectual disability to the general ageing population.
