Technological developments play a vital role in enhancing patient treatments and thus sustain and improve the health of the population.

From 50 applicants, across a wide range of disciplines (AHSS & STEM), we have 22 researchers partaking in the workshop. The focus of the lab is to build capacity to work in interdisciplinary research teams and offers an important neutral space where knowledge and practices from each discipline are considered equal. On the 7th of April from 1.00pm (Castletroy Park Hotel) we will be showcasing the emerging research from five new interdisciplinary health research teams.

Building an Innovation Ecosystem

Professor of Primary Healthcare Research, Public & Patient Involvement (PPI) Leader

People have expert knowledge about their own health and illness. It is essential that this knowledge is respected and included in health research. Professor MacFarlane and her inter-disciplinary team in the Graduate Entry Medical School are working on projects in Ireland, Europe and in North America to identify best practice to promote the meaningful involvement of patients and the public in health research.

Building an Innovation Ecosystem

Health and wellbeing are human rights which are put at risk by sedentary behaviours and lack of physical activity. Professor Alan Donnelly, Associate Professor of Exercise Physiology, Lifestyle & Health Theme Leader, HRI and his team are helping Ireland and Europe identify the most effective strategies for combatting these ever-increasing threats to health, and to promote health for citizens of all ages.
