This community contains research theses submitted by graduates of Trinity College Dublin.

In 2016 the Library embarked on a large digitisation project of PhD theses (selected from date range 2000-2015) and will be uploading more than 2,000 as open access e-theses later in 2016.

Graduates if you wish for your thesis to be included in TARA, First check if your thesis has been selected for scanning in 2016. If you are not on the 2016 scan list but would like to contribute a pdf copy of your thesis, we would love to hear from you!

Please email us at

From September 2016 onwards an eTheses submission system will be implemented College-wide for all Schools and all research theses.

TARA (Trinity's Access to Research Archive) has a robust takedown policy. If you have concerns about having your thesis available on the Internet

  • Genetic polymorphisms and arterial stiffness 

    Zhou, Sixiang (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Medicine. Discipline of Pharmacology & Therapeutics, 2008)
    Arterial stiffness exerts a major influence on cardiac afterload and coronary perfusion. Indices of arterial stiffness have therefore been proposed as surrogate markers of cardiovascular risk and as potential therapeutic ...
  • The synthesis of novel mast cell stabilisers from benzocycloalkanones 

    Zhang, Tao (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, 2010)
    The purpose of this project was to design and synthesise novel classes of mast cell stabilisers from benzocycloalkanones. This thesis is introduced with an overview of the increasing prevalence of allergic conditions ...
  • Investigation and theoretical modeling of the nonlinear optical properties of 5,10-A₂B₂ porphyrins 

    Zawadzka, Monika (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Chemistry, 2012)
    An optical limiter is a device which is transparent to ambient light but becomes opaque upon high intensity laser irradiation. Such irradiation is dangerous to human eyes and light sensitive detectors. Porphyrins, which ...

    Diabetes is associated with significant morbidity and mortality from microvascular and macrovascular complications. It is projected that the prevalence of diabetes will increase worldwide especially in the elderly population ...
  • Investigations into the anti allergy properties of novel benzocycloalkanone based compounds 

    Woods, Orla (Trinity College (Dublin, Ireland). School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences, 2010)
    An allergic response occurs because of a hypersensitive response by mast cells to an otherwise innocuous environmental substance. Allergen challenge causes mast cell degranulation, resulting in the release of mast cell ...
