Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Orla Morrissey’s research has focused on optimising the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of invasive fungal infections. She has recently completed a randomised controlled trial examining the clinical utility of new diagnostic tests for invasive aspergillosis. This study demonstrated that Aspergillus galactomannan detection and PCR improve our ability to diagnose and treat invasive fungal infections. These findings have recently been accepted for publication in Lancet Infectious Diseases (IF: 17.4) and will significantly change the future management of invasive aspergillosis in the clinical setting.
