About the speakers

Associate Professor David Hoey
David is an Associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering within the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and Principal Investigator within the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering in TCD. He leads a multidisciplinary experimental mechanobiology research group where his goal is to integrate engineering mechanics into the understanding of the molecular basis of musculoskeletal physiology and disease, leading to new therapies and medical devices.

Prof CatrĂ­ona Lally
CaitrĂ­ona is a Professor in Bioengineering in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in TCD.  Her current research areas include arterial tissue mechanics, vascular imaging, vascular mechanobiology and tissue engineering, with a particular focus on gaining fundamental insights into vascular tissue remodelling to enable better disease diagnosis and medical device design. She has secured considerable research funding from national funding agencies including SFI, Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Research Council and was awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2014.

Associate Professor Bruce Murphy
Bruce runs the medical device design laboratory at the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering. He has over 15 years' experience in the field of medical device design and has raised over €7m in grant funding for medical device design projects from Enterprise Ireland, SFI and the European Commission. To date there is one successful spin-out from the laboratory (Proverum) and he has licensed technology on three occasions to third parties.
