First fellows selected under EU-cofunded project

National University of Ireland Galway has made an initial selection of seven research fellows to take part in a project that involves both industrial and academic training supported by the Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions CO-FUND Scheme.

The MedTrain project is administered in Galway by CÚRAM, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Research in Medical Devices. Topics awarded grants include devices for deep brain stimulation, drug delivery, biosensing, tissue engineering and Crohn’s disease.

CÚRAM received €2.1 million last year under the CO-FUND scheme in support of the project and it has spend the past year putting together the MedTrain course programme. The initial plan was to provide up to 31 two-year fellowships in medical-device-related research but CÚRAM has extended this with a programme that will support participants for up to four and a half years.
