CANTAB Research Grant funds investigation of chronic inflammation in depression

PhD Student Naoise Mac Giollabhui received a CANTAB Research Grant in 2018 for his project: ‘Chronic inflammation as a pathway to cognitive dysfunction in adolescents and young adults with a history of elevated depressive symptoms’. We caught up with Naoise to discuss how the grant will benefit his research.
