More than 25 TERG staff and students attended the annual Bioengineering in Ireland conference in Enfield, Co. Meath

Well done to all TERG researchers who presented their work at the 24th Annual Conference of the Bioengineering Section of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland (Bioengineering in Ireland 2018) which took place in Enfield Co. Meath, January 25 - 27.

Included in the TERG presenters was Ms. Emily Ryan who gave an excellent talk after being shortlisted as one of 4 finalists in the Engineer's Ireland Biomedical engineering Medal competition, for which she submitted a research paper on ‘Collagen scaffolds functionalized with copper-eluting bioactive glass for the treatment of infection and regeneration of vascularized bone'.

Special congratulations go to Dr. Rosanne Raftery and Mr. Domhnall Walsh who were awarded ‘Regenerative Medicine Track - Best Oral Presentation' prizes in the mature- and early-stage researcher categories respectively.

Head of TERG Prof. Fergal O'Brien delivered the distinguished Haughton Lecture at the conference as recipient of the prestigious RAMI Silver Medal. The Silver Medal is presented to an acclaimed clinician or engineer, who throughout their career has made a significant impact in the field of bioengineering through academic endeavor and research.
