de Paor receives Ph.D. at National University of Ireland, Galway

March 7, 2014

Aisling de Paor recently completed her Ph.D. at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy, National University of Ireland, Galway. Her Ph.D. (which was supervised by Professor Gerard Quinn) is entitled 'Advancing Science and Controlling the Misuse of Genetic Information in Employment and Insurance - Towards an Effective European Union Regulatory Framework.' Her thesis suggests regulatory options at European Union level for responding to concerns about misuse of genetic information from the perspective of privacy/ data protection law and non- discrimination law.

Aisling is an affiliated researcher of the Burton Blatt Institute and was a visiting research scholar here in October 2012.

She is also currently editing a book with Professor Peter Blanck and Professor Gerard Quinn entitled, 'Genetic Discrimination - Transatlantic Perspectives on the Case for a European Union Level Legal Response,' which will be published by Routledge in 2014.

Aisling is pictured here at her graduation ceremony with Professor Gerard Quinn and other staff members and friends from the School of Law (NUI Galway).
