Professor Bond is a medical graduate of Trinity College and trained as a clinical haematologist in Ireland. After completing specialist haematology training, he moved to London to do laboratory research at UCL Institute of Child Health. He went on to do a PhD in Molecular Haematology at Imperial College/ MRC Clinical Sciences Centre (now the London Institute of Medical Sciences), followed by a post-doctoral fellowship at the Hôpital Necker-Enfants Malades in Paris. The main theme of his work has been the investigation of how gene regulation is subverted in leukaemia. Professor Bond returned to Ireland in 2018 to lead a new collaborative paediatric leukaemia research program between the national paediatric haemato-oncology service at Our Lady's Hospital, Crumlin and Systems Biology Ireland at UCD. His group will use systems biology approaches to investigate gene and protein networks in paediatric leukaemia, with particular reference to normal haematopoiesis. The ultimate hope is to find more precise and effective cures for children and adolescents with these diseases.
