CÚRAM SFI Research Centre for Medical Devices

CÚRAM, the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Centre for Research in Medical Devices, based at NUI Galway, is working to make life easier for patients suffering from chronic illness by enhancing and developing medical devices that can last longer in the body and be more in tune to the needs of the individual patient, so as to alleviate human suffering.

One of 17 national SFI research centres, CÚRAM was established in 2015 and is funded both through SFI and industry partners. While led by National University of Ireland Galway, CÚRAM’s partner institutes include University College Dublin, University College Cork, Trinity College Dublin, University of Limerick, Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, Dublin City University, Athlone Institute of Technology, Clinical Research Development Ireland and National Institute Bioprocessing Research and Training. CÚRAM aims to create a sustainable future for the medtech sector in Ireland and train the next generation of world class medtech scientists and entrepreneurs.

Ireland is recognised as one of the major global hubs for Medtech Research and Development, a leading area of innovation, employment and export. The establishment of CÚRAM, a world-leading Irish medical device R&D centre supports and strengthens this position. The centre is improving and enhancing existing medical devices and developing the next generation of biomedical implants, cell device and drug-device combination products to address unmet clinical needs.
