UCD SBFE Assoc Professor Aoife Gowen Featured in Irish Times Article

UCD School of Biosystems and Food Engineering Associate Professor Aoife Gowen featured recently in an Irish Times article highlighting the benefits of the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions programme. Dr. Gowen researched the use of Hyperspectral Imaging to investigate how the human body interacts with biomaterials in Kobe University, Japan under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie award. This work formed the basis of her being awarded a European Research Council grant to set up an imaging lab in UCD.
