Members of the Health and Medical Technologies Research cluster recently presented their work at the 21st Annual Conference of the Bioengineering Section of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland (BINI2015) which took place from 16th – 17th January 2015 in Carton House, Maynooth, Co Kildare. Our members gave nine presentations on a diverse range of topics including stroke rehabilitation using EEG, bladder cancer diagnostics using opto-electronic devices, electrospraying technologies and protein gels. A full list of our presentations is given below, accompanied in some cases by the associated slides or posters. Interested parties can contact the principal investigators for more information.
