The NRCI are very pleased to advise that on the 22nd March 2017 Rachel Moran became Dr. Rachel Moran. Dr. Moran defended her PhD work to the highest possible standard and excelled at every level during her viva. It has been amazing to see Dr. Moran become an expert in our field. Dr. Moran has shown that attitude, respect, hard work and honesty represent key ingredients for success as a researcher and as a person. This is a great day for the MPRG, the NRCI, WIT, the TILDA study; and most importantly, for Dr. Moran and her family (we are all so proud).
