      Not yet, but I hope that one day I will give a significant contribution to the field of science I’m working on.
      Science is made by small discoveries that create bigger knowledges. At the moment I feel that I’m just at the beginning of the “chain of science”, but I’m sure I will find something able to create a new ring on this chain that will help other scientists to go on with the research, as well as the society to improve their mental wellbeing 🙂

      People with the genetic marker of lactose intolerance respond differently to lactose (the main sugar in milk) because the colon bacteria and microbes uses lactose for food via fermentation. The fermentation of lactose results in a biological pathway that may bring health benefits to the host. I have presented a proposed pathway based on my PhD research results.

      Hi Aoibhe, yes, lots of things! I discover new things every day in terms of ‘new knowledge’. Considering ‘finished products’, I have discovered several molecules that can be used as tools for studying biology,
