The Expert

Biomedical Engineering looks at the human body as an engineering system: a complex computational, mechanical, and electrical system, and applies the techniques of engineering to improve health outcomes.

Biomedical Engineering looks at the human body as an engineering system: a complex computational, mechanical, and electrical system, and applies the techniques of engineering to improve health outcomes.

Professor Lowery’s research is focused on using engineering to understand the human nervous system as it relates to movement, in health and disease, and to design therapies and technologies to improve impaired motor function. She leads an interdisciplinary research team in the area of Neuromuscular Systems and Neural Engineering. Her research interests include electromyography, bioelectromagnetics, myoelectric control of artificial limbs, electrical stimulation, deep brain stimulation and neural control of movement.

After receiving her Bachelor of Engineering and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Engineering at UCD, Professor Lowery spent five years at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and Northwestern University Chicago as a post-doctoral research fellow and then as a Research Assistant Professor.

Professor Lowery is a Funded Investigator in the SFI Insight Centre for Data Analytics and the SFI CÚRAM Centre for Research in Medical Devices. In 2015 she was awarded a prestigious European Research Council Consolidator grant for the project ‘Multiscale Modelling of the Neuromuscular System for Closed Loop Deep Brain Stimulation’.

Biomedical Engineering is the application of the principles of engineering to healthcare and medicine. It is an interdisciplinary field, requiring knowledge of both medicine and engineering.

The ME in Biomedical Engineering, having been established in 2006 under the Bologna framework, is unique in Ireland.

This interdisciplinary programme employs the principles of mechanical and electronic engineering to understand human performance, analyse physiological systems and design innovative medical devices and technologies.

Students learn through a combination of lectures, laboratories, group discussion and research and applied clinical projects, delivered by internationally recognised faculty with active research programmes in Biomedical Engineering. Students complete a professional work placement in either the medical technologies and devices industry in a clinical environment, or with a research group in the first year of the programme, followed by a major Biomedical Engineering research project in the final year. Assessment is carried out through a mix of examination, continuous assessment of laboratory and project work, student presentations and the final year research project.
