Dr Dominick J.H McCabe PhD,FRCPI

Consultant Neurologist / Clinical Associate Professor in Neurology

Dr Dominick McCabe qualified from UCD in 1992. He initially trained in Neurology in Dublin, and subsequently at the Institute of Neurology (ION) and The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London where he designed and conducted several studies on translational platelet science in cerebrovascular disease for his PhD studies with Prof Martin Brown and Prof Samuel Machin at University College London. He completed his training at the Royal Free Hospital and The NHNN in London, prior to his appointment as Clinical Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant Neurologist at the Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Royal Free Campus, UCL-ION.

He took up his current post as a Consultant Neurologist at the Dept. of Neurology / Stroke Service, The Adelaide and Meath Hospital, Dublin, incorporating The National Children’s Hospital (AMNCH) in 2006 where he established and co-directs the ‘Daily, One-Stop Rapid Access Stroke Prevention Service’ at AMNCH. He has been instrumental in Clinical and Academic Neurology development at AMNCH/TCD, and serves on several advisory groups including his roles as the Regional Stroke Neurology Lead, HSE Dublin Mid Leinster Region / Dublin Midlands, Treasurer of the ‘Irish Heart Council on Stroke’, and Network Executive Committee Member and Lead Investigator, HRB-Stroke Clinical Trials Network, Ireland.

He is the Chairperson of the Vascular Neurology Research Foundation (VNRF), and Clinical Associate Professor in Neurology, Department of Neurology, AMNCH / Trinity College Dublin. His research group at AMNCH has an international reputation for conducting and publishing world-class studies on translational platelet science, haemostasis and thrombosis, and vascular imaging in patients with ischaemic cerebrovascular disease (CVD) and asymptomatic and symptomatic carotid stenosis. He has an in-depth knowledge of this field, and his research group are currently participating in 16 local, national or international collaborative studies in ischaemic cerebrovascular disease and aspects of general neurology.

The main objective of the research carried out by Dr McCabe’s group at the VNRF is to improve our understanding of the potential pathophysiological mechanisms causing TIA or stroke, and to identify individuals who should benefit from a modified, ‘personalised’ anti-thrombotic therapy regimen to optimise their response to commonly-prescribed preventive treatments following TIA or stroke.
