Hi! I am Shriram Patel and I live with my family in Cork. I am a researcher in APC Mirobiome Ireland, University College Cork. I study interaction between Genes and Bacteria in Coeliac disease. I love cooking and playing Chess.
My Typical Day
Being a bioinformatician, I have a flexible routine. My day starts with a cup of tea and breakfast. My work start at around 9:30 in the morning and last until 5:30 in the evening. After dinner, I read couple of good research reports/ work from other scientist to get updated with the current science in my field.
What I'd do with the prize money
There is still a lot of misinformation out there about coeliac disease. I would use the prize money to educate public about coeliac disease and releated science/ truth behind common myths.
