Aisling graduated from Cork University Hospital as a General Nurse and later undertook a Post Graduate in Clinical Research with the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, Dublin.
Taking a break from nursing in 2008, she worked in the Sales field with Nutricia Medical, a division of Danone. Responsible for the promotion and education of Oral Nutritional Products in the community, she developed a keen interest in research-based evidence in health. Aisling moved to the ELDERMET project in 2013 studying the relationship between diet, gut bacteria and health status in a large number of elderly (>65 years) Irish subjects before joining the HRB-Clinical Research Facility in 2014 where she has focussed mainly in co-ordinating trials in rare-disease and nephrology disciplines.
