Home / Our Tutors / Maura Walsh

Maura completed a graduate degree in DCU, a PhD in Bristol University and a Post-Doctorate in Trinity College, prior to gaining her industrial experience. In her career, she has worked primarily within the areas of Quality Systems and Sterilisation/Microbiology and this also included being an auditor with NSAI within the Medical Devices sector. Maura has worked in a significant number of multinationals in Europe, US and Asia as well as indigenous Irish start-ups supporting both sterilisation and microbiology projects to provide leadership and direction to ensure their project is delivered in a timely and compliant manner within Quality Systems and Microbiology/Sterilisation.

Having worked in the areas of microbiology and sterilisation for more than 20 years, Maura has many years practical experience in sterilisation projects and uses these examples throughout the training to keep the audience engaged and actively participating in the session. She has experience in Ethylene Oxide, Gamma, E-Beam and steam sterilisation types and a unique ability to explain the terminology in a way that is easy for other disciplines to understand so that they do not feel intimidated by the topic.

Maura understands that many design, regulatory, quality and supply chain personnel need to interact with sterilisation suppliers and test laboratories during the lifecycle of their product and that these relationships are more productive when the team has an understanding and appreciation of sterilisation validation requirements.

News & UpdatesFact

Outside of the world of microbiology and sterilisation, I can be found on the side of a pitch watching GAA or camogie most weekends and I also help in administration side of things in my local club.  I am a member of an athletic club and we train 2-3 times a week, getting some gruelling long runs in.  When I am in the car I love current affairs and talk radio and in the last year I discovered podcasts and a whole new world has opened up!
