The Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute (TBSI) recently celebrated it's fifth anniversary as researchers showcased some of their major successes and outlined some of the next-gen research directions they are currently pursuing.
To read about two of these exciting projects — restoring sight with artificial corneas and programming cancer cells to attack tumours — see here.
TBSI's researchers have, in a short time, reshaped the scientific and medical landscape by making a number of amazing breakthroughs, developing new medical devices, and engaging with industry partners.
Their work is making a difference to a huge number of people, but to help open our eyes to the beauty of science that often goes hand in hand with life-changing discovery, TBSI ran an image competition. Here, we showcase some of the most eye-grabbing shots captured by the researchers themselves.
