Manufacturing 4.0

  • Advanced Materials is at the core of many of the research activities of MEDeng, we have many on-going projects focused on the developing and manufacturing of biomaterials and drug-biomaterial combinations for therapeutic use in neurological, ocular, cardiovascular and musculoskeletal applications. This research activity is highly multidisciplinary as understanding the biological interaction at the device-tissue interface is key to the efficacy of the biomaterials and medical devices in vivo.
  • Across the different departments in APT, we have on-going projects developing organic and non-organic materials for different applications. These include conductive polymers for wearable sensors and 3D circuit design, as well as metal alloys for additive manufacturing and enhanced heat exchange. (APT@DCU)
