Investigator

Dr Andrew Daly is an Assistant Professor in Biomedical Engineering at the National University of Ireland Galway. His research focuses on bioprinting tissue and organ models with advanced physiological structure and function. In particular, this work focuses on developing bioprinting technologies inspired by organ morphogenesis. He is currently supervisor for two PhD students at CÚRAM with the projects focused on bioprinting heart tissues and organoids with advanced maturation. He is also PI for an industry funded project on biomaterial characterisation.

Dr Daly was awarded a PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Trinity College Dublin in 2018, where he developed bioprinted implants for joint resurfacing. For this work, he was awarded the Engineer’s Ireland Biomedical Engineering Research Medal in 2018. Following this, he moved to the Dept of Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania for his postdoctoral training. In 2020, he was awarded an American Heart Association Postdoctoral Fellowship to develop bioprinted cardiac disease models for screening of miRNA therapeutics. In January 2021, he started his research group at NUI Galway.

Dr Daly’s research is highly cited and has been published in the top journals in the field, including Nature Communications, Nature Reviews Materials, Cell, Biomaterials, Advanced Science, Acta Biomaterialia, Advanced Healthcare Materials, and Biofabrication.
