Working with the Body

We combine functional biomaterials work with research in drug delivery, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and device design to create new devices and approaches.

CÚRAM’s scientific programme addresses key problems, technical challenges and the current limitations in medical device design and functionalisation, focusing on improving existent devices, developing convergent technologies into clinical solutions and establishing quality systems of standardisation.

Our research programme, driven by specialist researchers, industry partnerships and clinicians, is developing solutions for global health challenges:

Chronic and acute respiratory diseases

Cardiovascular Disease (CVD)


Neurological Disorders

Musculoskeletal conditions
