Hi I’m Lucy! I’m from Dublin and I graduated from UCD with a BSc in Biology, Mathematics and Education. This is part of UCD’s concurrent degree pathway which means this year I will be completing a one year MSc in Biology & Mathematics Education with UCD to fully qualify as a teacher.
My STInt working at MSD has provided me with so much experience to what it is like working in a STEM industry. I worked alongside industry experts and was treated like a full member of the team. The experience will have a lasting impact on my teaching career and has opened my eyes to the careers open to a person interested in the pharma industry.
MSD Ireland is one of the country’s leading healthcare companies, having first established here over 50 years ago. In order to understand MSD Ireland, it’s important to get a sense of the Irish pharmaceutical industry and the pivotal role it plays in Ireland’s economy as a whole.
We currently employ approximately 2,700 employees, across six sites in Ballydine, Co Tipperary, Brinny, Co Cork, Carlow, Dunboyne and Dublin and, in addition, operate substantial Human Health and Animal Health businesses.
Significantly our Irish sites manufacture approximately half of MSD’s top twenty products, saving and enhancing lives in over sixty countries around the world.
