Research and Education Conference Programme Thursday 29th November 2012, from 9am to 4pm The Pillar Room, The Rotunda Hospital, Parnell Square, Dublin 1

Context For the past two years, Cappagh National Orthopaedic Hospital, Children’s University Hospital Temple Street, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital and The Rotunda Hospital have been working together on a strategic alliance known as the North Dublin Hospital Group (NDHG). As the NDHG is a unique grouping of hospitals that provides maternity, paediatric, adult and geriatric care, the NDHG is working together to build on the clinical, operational and educational synergies that exist between them. The NDHG recognises the importance of collaboration in research for the healthcare system and for the country as a whole and as a result it is hosting the Inaugural Conference on Collaborative Lifespan Research. The purpose of the conference is to bring together an outstanding and diverse group of clinicians, researchers, and thought leaders at the forefront of collaborative research in Ireland.

Aims of the Conference The objectives of the Collaborative Lifespan Research Conference are as follows: > To showcase the importance of collaboration in research for the healthcare system and for the country as a whole > To highlight and demonstrate the value and attractiveness of progressing collaborative research opportunities in the future > To make visible the collaborative efforts of the North Dublin Hospital Group > To provide a forum for healthcare professionals and stakeholders to discuss frontier research in Irish medicine.

Keynote Speaker Dr Orla Doyle BA, PhD Dr Orla Doyle is a lecturer in the UCD School of Economics and a research fellow at the UCD Geary Institute. Orla received a Ph.D. in economics from Trinity College Dublin in 2005 and a B.A. in economics and social science (TCD). The core focus of her research is a micro analysis of human behaviour using rigorous econometric techniques. Orla applies quantitative microeconometrics skills to multiple disciplines including the economics of human development, health economics, labour economics, political behaviour, early child development and education, and methods for evaluating policy interventions. Orla is the principal investigator on the ‘Preparing for Life’ early childhood intervention. Orla’s keynote address centres around her work on the Preparing for Life programme which is a five-year school readiness programme, beginning with the recruitment of 200 pregnant women living in disadvantaged areas of north Dublin. The programme is designed to work with families from pregnancy onwards and aims to support the healthy development of the child. The experimental programme is the first of its kind in Ireland and aims to provide evidence on the best practice for early childhood interventions.

Panel Discussion The final session of the day will take the form of a panel discussion on ‘Why investment in collaborative research should be a strategic priority for Ireland’, which will include the following leading thinkers from the medical, academic, science and policy field. 1 Dr Anne Cody – Head of Clinical and Applied Biomedical Research, Health Research Board 2 Prof Patrick Murray – Professor of Clinical Pharmacology, University College Dublin 3 Dr Brian O’Neill – Lifesciences Manager, Enterprise Ireland 4 Jeanne Bolger – General Manager and VP Alliance Management, Janssen 5 Dick Ahlstrom – Science Editor, The Irish Times 6 Dr James Coleman – CEO, Vasorum
