South Africa, Jack F. Murphy

I’m Jack Murphy

A Biomedical Eningeering Student
at Trinity College Dublin
See my research experience!

I was born and raised in New York City. While in high school I had the opportunity to conduct research in the Costa Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Through this experience, I developed a deep interest in the fields of tissue engineering and cardiac regeneration. I have now moved my passions over to Dublin while I pursue a degree in Biomedical Engineering from Trinity College Dublin.

During term, I work as lab assistant in the Monaghan Lab in the Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute. While, during the summer I spend my time as a lab assistant in the Costa Lab at Mt. Sinai.

Have a look at my previous work throughout this website and feel free to get in touch.
