Michael Twomey and a PhD CF Story Like No Other

Dec 06, 2019, 12:07 PM
On this episode of Insights, the CUBS UCC podcast, we find out about the remarkable journey of Michael Twomey, a cystic fibrosis sufferer who set out to improve the lives of those impacted by the genetic disorder through his PhD research.
Not only that, but he is now looking to develop an app arising from his research, and he has achieved all of this after returning to UCC as a post-graduate student having previously set up and sold his own IT consultancy business.
Never settling, never giving up and always looking to learn are just some of the inspiring themes from Michael’s life-story on this episode.
