The INFANT Centre is Ireland’s first dedicated perinatal research center, made up of world-leading researchers from a variety of disciplines. INFANT’s mission is to develop innovative technologies in perinatal healthcare, improving the treatment and care available to pregnant mothers and newborn babies worldwide.
Biophotonics@Tyndall is a newly established research program based at the Tyndall National Institute, led by Professor Stefan Andersson-Engels. The group focus is to form close collaboration with clinician’s, research centers and companies to accelerate biophotonics technology and rapidly deliver breakthrough technologies into the hands of healthcare providers. The new program has been formed by the Tyndall National Institute, the Irish Photonic Integration Center (IPIC) and University College Cork, under a €5 million award from Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).
INFANT’s Professor Eugene Dempsey and IPIC’s Professor Stefan Andersson-Engels have established an active collaboration to co-supervise PhD students aiming to develop novel research tools in neonatology based on biophotonics. Specifically, the aim is to combine INFANT’s proficiency and capacity as a research centre at one of the most advanced clinics in Europe for premature care, and IPIC’s capacity in photonics integration to develop the new generation of photonics-based systems for biomedical use.
