Biography

Leo R. Quinlan received his BSc degree in Biochemistry in 1994 and was awarded his Ph.D. degree in stem cell biology in 1997 from the National University of Ireland Galway. From there he worked as a research fellow at the cellular physiology research unit University College Cork. In 1999 he was appointed as Lecturer in Physiology School of Medicine, National University of Ireland Galway. His current research interests include medical device development, usability, neural modulation, electrophysiology and ion channel function in neural and non neural systems. Dr. Quinlan is a member of a number of biomedical engineering and physiological related societies and he is a referee for a number biomedical, cellular and molecular based journals.
