Prof McDonnell receives Award for Outstanding Contribution to Respiratory Medicine

By Aileen Quigley - 04th Dec 2023

Outstanding Contribution
Prof Tim McDonnell

The Irish Thoracic Society (ITS) Annual Scientific Meeting 2023 featured a distinguished line-up of national and international speakers, researchers, and experts that examined clinical excellence across the vast spectrum of respiratory medicine, as well as the rapidly changing landscape of care delivery in Ireland. The four pillars of the ITS – communication and advocacy; education and training; research; and membership services – all featured heavily throughout the event, which began with specialist registrar training, a case study review forum, and poster discussions.

The highlight of the meeting was the presentation of the Award for Outstanding Contribution to Respiratory Medicine to Prof Tim McDonnell, retired Consultant Respiratory Physician at St Vincent’s University Hospital, Dublin, and current Chair of the Board of COPD [chronic obstructive pulmonary disease] Support Ireland. The award was presented on behalf of the ITS by Prof McDonnell’s friend and colleague Prof Charlie Gallagher. Prof McDonnell expressed both delight and gratitude at the honour.
