Our research is supported by national funding bodies such as Science Foundation Ireland, the Irish Research Council, and the Health Research Board, as well as by international funding agencies, including the European Research Council and the Wellcome Trust. We publish our work regularly in leading scientific journals, resulting in an international reputation for scholarly quality. We also have a strong record for the application and commercialisation of our research findings - many invention disclosures and patent applications have been filed and several successful companies that have been founded by members of our School.
