CÚRAM is the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices, based at NUI Galway. Our researchers are designing and manufacturing the next generation of medical devices and implants to improve health outcomes and enhance quality of life for patients with chronic illnesses. With six academic partners and over 29 industry partners, CÚRAM is helping to establish Ireland as a global hub of research expertise in medical device technology, a leading area of innovation, employment and export in Ireland. CÚRAM’s innovative approach incorporates biomaterials, drug delivery, cell-based technologies, glycosciences and device design to enhance, develop and validate both traditional and new combinational medical devices from molecular design stage to implant manufacturing. Our devices are developed with strong clinical collaborations to enable rapid translation of research findings to clinical application. Key to this approach has been the establishment of a unique network of national and international collaborations, integrating world class clinical, academic and industrial partners.
