Acquisition of MSc, PhD and postdoctoral research funding has led to the establishment of critical mass and capabilities in institute prioritised areas of sensor technology, nanotechnology and microfabrication, leading to the award of Institute designated research centre for the Centre for Research in Electroanalytical Technologies (CREATE) and Prof. Eithne Dempsey currently co-ordinates this centre at ITT Dublin.

The activity within the team also forms the Biomedical Devices thematic area within the wider Centre of Applied Science for Health, recently established at ITT Dublin in partnership with two universities (Dublin City University and NUI Maynooth) and one local hospital (Adelaide and Meath Hospital, incorporating the National Children’s Hospital).

The group is currently comprised of active researchers (postdoctoral researcher fellows, postgraduate students and visiting researchers) working on a range of ongoing research programmes spanning Nanostructured materials including nanoassembly, nanoparticle synthesis with use of modern electrochemical and surface based techniques for the study of fundamental material properties; Micro and nanosensor technology with applications in human and animal healthcare and Electrocatalytic materials including design, isolation and purification of redox active materials (applications in biomedical, fuel cell and environmental science) 








This applied research base provides expertise and resources for the Technology Gateway Microsensors for Clinical Analysis (MiCRA Biodiagnostics (funded under Enterprise Ireland), whose remit is to engage with industry in the medical device /diagnostics and biopharma sectors on a range of industry led projects.
