Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton T.D., presented Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) prestigious St. Patrick’s Day Science Medal to Prof Eamonn Quigley, Chief of Gastroenterology and Hepatology, at Houston Methodist Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical College; and Mr Michael Mahoney, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Boston Scientific, for their significant contributions to academia, research and industry.
Now in its sixth year, the SFI St. Patrick’s Day Science Medal also recognises Prof Quigley and Mr Mahoney’s significant roles in supporting and engaging with the research ecosystem in Ireland. The medal is awarded annually to US-based scientists, engineers or technology leaders with strong Irish connections. This is the fourth successive year that the medal will be awarded to two recipients, with an eminent recipient chosen by an independent selection committee, from academia and another from industry.
