Fellowship of the Institute of Biomedical Sciences, London, was completed in 1980.

Marie has a specific interest in the disease Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. This formed the topic of her thesis while undertaking the MSc. in Clinical Biochemistry at Trinity College Dublin which was completed in 1990. Predominant research work concerned examining the relationship of Androgens with 17α OH Progesterone in the treatment of this disease. In addition other research interests are the aetiology of the disease Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and the investigation of Androgen excess states.

Marie continued her academic studies with an MBA in Health Services Management, from University College Dublin and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, awarded in 2001.With this additional qualification Marie moved into laboratory management, 1st as quality manager at St Vincent's and now as Chief Medical Scientist and Laboratory Manager at the National Maternity Hospital in Dublin.

Marie has worked with the Management Body in the production of Statutes and Internal Regulations, registration of EPBS in Belgium and in the production of the position paper on education standards. She has appeared before a committee of the European Parliament outlining the objectives of EPBS and seeking the establishment of a common platform.

Marie is committed to working with member associations to ensure that Biomedical Scientists are recognised as key contributors to healthcare and to ensuring that they have the education and experience necessary to be leaders in Laboratory Medicine.

Apart from her scientific career Marie has trained as a singer. She has won competitions at the College of Music in Dublin and at the Feis Ceoil. When not involved in scientific or musical pursuits Marie can be found riding her horse.
