Developing new medical devices to improve patient care...
The Translational Medical Device Lab is focused on developing medical devices that have a tangible impact on patient care and support Ireland’s indigenous medtech industry.
The Translational Medical Device Lab is located within University College Hospital Galway and is co-located with the HRB’s Clinical Research Facility, giving the team access to both clinical expertise and patients.
The Translational Medical Device Lab seeks to bridge the gap between industry and academia by adopting industry best-practice in device development, and supporting the medtech sector in both device design and clinical evaluation of novel devices.
Led by Dr Martin O’Halloran, the Translational Medical Device Lab is composed of a diverse team of researchers that bring medicine, science, and engineering together to advance healthcare technologies. Our focus is the design, development, and clinical evaluation of innovative medical devices for diagnostic and therapeutic applications.
The team have experience in a wide range of fields, from biophysics, to engineering and computing, and to clinical trial design.
