'Celtic alliance' to target advances in healthcare

Thursday, 22 March 2012

"UCD already leads the European Infrastructure for Nanosafety and Bionanoscience (composed of the key Centres from all over Europe), and therefore has considerable understanding of how new nanomedicines and nanodiagnostics can be shepherded through the regulatory system," said Professor Kenneth Dawson, University College Dublin.

"Now, with the link to CAN we have the capacity to develop diagnostic devices that can pick up early signals of disease and support their commercialisation. This project is part of an overall strategy in UCD's new Nanomedicine Centre initiative to draw together all of the assets necessary to make UCD, combined with our partners in TCD and DCU, a European force in this arena."
