Engineering capability manager Majella Henchion advises that 'if it doesn’t look likely that you will achieve your goal at the first attempt, adapt and pull back to ensure you can and will get a second chance'.
University College Cork’s civil engineering building is to be named after the first female engineering graduate of the university, Iris Ashley Cummins.
As the market for novel biopharmaceutical products grow, so does the demand for productive, reliable manufacturing processes which can be rapidly developed at a large scale. Chromatography, a foundational process in pharmaceutical manufacturing has seen increased process efficiency and productivity with the extension from traditional batch to continuous counter-current operation, writes Niamh O'Connell.
Deploying artificial intelligence successfully in Europe requires an integrated landscape for its adoption, and its development based on Europe’s unique characteristics, write Edward Curry of NUI Galway and Barry O’Sullivan of University College Cork.
The interest in fullerenes lies in their unique energy levels and high electron affinity which makes these molecules promising candidates for biological applications such as carriers for drug and gene therapy, or pharmaceutical applications such as being used as carriers for drug delivery and increasing the acceptance of artificial implants, writes Carl Pichon.
Since many drugs cannot be delivered efficiently due to various obstacles such as low aqueous solubility and short half-life, designing a delivery system that makes the therapeutic agents show their highest possible healing process capacity is imperative, writes Ciara O'Sullivan.
