Thomas Costelloe, PhD Consultant

Thomas Costelloe studied Biomedical Science at the National University of Ireland, Galway before initiating his PhD studies at the same university. There, Thomas combined molecular biology, biochemistry and genetics to investigate the role of histone modifications in the DNA damage response. Upon completion of his doctoral studies, Thomas pursued postdoctoral research at the Leiden University Medical Centre, where he studied the role of chromatin remodeling complexes in DNA repair, and later investigated aberrant neuronal development leading to intellectual disability.

Thomas is passionate about addressing the challenges faced by the scientific community in translating findings in the lab into clinical practice and meaningful health outcomes. At ttopstart, Thomas will augment his scientific knowledge with business concepts to generate successful translation strategies.
