Welcome

Trinity College Dublin is delighted to announce that the 26th Annual Conference of the Section of Bioengineering of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland (BinI 2020) will take place at the Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort, Co Carlow, Ireland from Friday 17th – Saturday 18th January 2020.

Bioengineering in Ireland is one of Ireland’s longest-running and most active research conferences at the interface of engineering and health science. Since the first conference in 1995, it has continued to grow in size and expand in scope. Analysing the most recent programme (from the very successful scientific and social conference held in Limerick in January 2019) reveals a truly diverse range of topics: biomechanics, biomaterials, medical device design, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and imaging.

Each year there are a number of prestigious prizes awarded at the conference. These include the presentation of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland (RAMI) silver medal to the Haughton Lecturer, and the RAMI Bronze medal to the presenter of the best paper at the conference. The meeting is also traditionally an occasion for young researchers and graduate students to present their work alongside senior researchers of international standing. There are a number of student prizes to encourage this tradition to be continued. The annual Engineers Ireland Biomedical Research Medal competition for PhD research will also take place in conjunction with the conference.
