Eoin Cotter, PhD
Program Lead, Learning Experience
The Learning Experience at GBHI builds new opportunities for the fellows and GBHI to expand their work and message.
Eoin primarily works with the Learning Experience team to provide coordination and oversight of the design, development, and delivery of the GBHI learning experience. This involves identifying strategic priorities and opportunities for development in both the learning experience and the wider research, training, advocacy and thought leadership activities of GBHI.
Words of Strength
Collaboration, coordination, identifying opportunities
Eoin uses a broad range of skills drawn from experience of education, research, partnership building and project management to help create and sustain the environment for our incredible fellows to develop, grow, and ultimately achieve impact.
Eoin’s previous roles in research and education include management of development and delivery of technical supports for research, education, and business development at the RCSI School of Pharmacy, and managing delivery and development of high-quality scientific support services, and education at the UCD Clinical Research Center.
Eoin's work helps ensure that the overall learning experience meets the training and development needs of a diverse cohort of future leaders, and helps build new opportunities for the fellows, and GBHI more generally, to expand their work and message.
Eoin completed a BSc in Biotechnology in Dublin City University (2001), before undertaking a PhD in vascular biology at the same university. In 2005, Eoin joined UCD/MMUH as a postdoctoral researcher, examining the non-immunological effects of HIV infection and treatment.
