Improving Health & Wellbeing


We are working to improve health and wellbeing by addressing global challenges in medical technologies, regenerative medicine, population health & health services, neuroscience and cancer.


We champion multi-disciplinary teams, and our people work across fundamental science, engineering, medicine, psychology, economics, clinical and translational groups.  We strive to embed patient involvement into our research and we collaborate extensively with others around the world - with research institutions, industry and health organisations.


Our facilities include extensive laboratories and research capacity, including the Centre for Cell Manfacturing. We are also the home of CÚRAM, the national Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices. Our campus is adjacent to Galway University Hospital, where we have located our Lambe Institute for Translational Research and the Health Research Board (HRB) Clinical Research Facility
