Detailed Project Description

External exposure to terrestrial gamma radiation represents a significant component to the total average annual dose received by a person living in Ireland from all sources of ionising radiation. External gamma ray doses from natural radionuclides originate largely from the decay of radionuclides belonging to the radioactive decay series of 238U, 235U and 232Th, as well as from the decay of 40K, all of which have been present on the Earth since its formation. In addition, a number of artificial radionuclides (e.g., 137Cs and 241Am) have been deposited throughout Ireland as a result of fallout from nuclear weapons testing and accidental releases such as those from the Chernobyl and Fukushima nuclear accidents. Since terrestrial gamma radiation depends on the nature of the underlying bedrock and soil composition, as well as the pattern of deposition of artificial radionuclides, an individual’s annual dose as a result of this exposure pathway will largely be determined by their place of residence. Several studies of gamma dose rates from natural and artificial radionuclides in Ireland were conducted in the 1980s and 1990s, and these have formed the basis for the estimation of terrestrial gamma radiation doses in the periodic assessments which are carried out by the EPA on the average annual radiation doses received by the Irish population from all sources of ionising radiation. By undertaking a comprehensive new survey of natural and artificial radionuclide concentrations and gamma ray dose rates throughout Ireland, and linking the results of these ground surveys to the detailed radiometric data generated by the Tellus airborne surveys which have been conducted by the Geological Survey of Ireland since 2012, the GRaDE project aims to develop a better understanding of the geographical distribution of natural and artificial gamma-emitting radionuclide concentrations in the Irish terrestrial environment with a view to providing a more accurate, up to date estimate of the average annual effective dose that a member of the Irish public receives as a result of exposure from terrestrial gamma radiation. By making use of a combination of high-resolution gamma spectrometry measurements, direct gamma dose rates gathered in the field using calibrated field monitors, and the gamma dose rates inferred from available aerial radiometric data on uranium, thorium and potassium concentrations, and 137Cs deposition from the Tellus programme, a set of new, high-resolution maps on radionuclide concentrations and gamma ray dose rates throughout Ireland will be generated using appropriate Geographical Information Systems (GIS) tools. These maps, together with information on population density, will be used to generate a map of outdoor gamma ray doses in Ireland and to investigate the range and average annual doses to a member of the Irish public arising from terrestrial gamma radiation.

The work undertaken by the PhD student will include a combination of fieldwork (soil sampling), radiometric determination using high-resolution gamma spectrometry with HPGe detectors and in-situ air kerma dose rate measurements using portable detectors. In addition the student will analyse the Tellus airborne radiometric survey blocks and seek how best to integrate them with the ground samples within a GIS framework to construct the new national map. The student will also get to spend a period of time in EPA’s radioanalytical laboratories which are based in Dublin.

Detailed Project Description

This position is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and is available from 1st September 2024 for four years. In line with the National Framework for Doctoral education, the successful candidate will participate in a structured PhD education and training programme, providing a well-developed monitoring and mentoring support structure. Funding includes a fixed stipend of €22,000 per year along with payment of fees, and laboratory consumables for up to four years. 

This study aims to provide proof of principle for a gene therapy to improve repair and function after Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). Following SCI a glial scar is produced which contains specific proteoglycans that inhibit axon growth and impede regeneration. This project aims to disrupt proteoglycan biosynthesis using short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) delivered via lentiviral vectors (LV). This disruption will be assessed using in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo models of SCI. In parallel a hydrogel LV delivery system will be optimised to improve LV stability and  localisation.

Over the course of this project is anticipated that the Ph.D. student will

  1. Culture mammalian cells (cell lines and primary cells).
  2. Prepare and test LV to deliver short hairpin RNAs and fluorescent proteins.
  3. Assess changes in protein and proteoglycan levels by techniques including Western Blotting, immunocytochemistry, and fluorescence microscopy.
  4. Assess functional changes using in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo SCI models.
  5. In collaboration with researchers at the Mayo Clinic, develop a hydrogel-based delivery system for LV.
  6. Actively participate in research group meetings.
  7. Contribute to presentations at scientific meetings and to writing of scientific papers.
  8. Contribute to undergraduate and M.Sc student project supervision and laboratory-based teaching. Participate in outreach to school students and the public.
