BDI RESEARCH FEATURED IN SFI CASE IMPACT STUDY

02.13



BDI research was recently featured in a Science Foundation Ireland Case Impact study. These case studies show examples of impact generation and related activities from the scientific research community.

The BDI and The Irish Centre for High-End Computing (ICHEC) came together to solve a technology roadblock in interpreting new data derived from an advanced diagnostic for platelet function, which demonstrated impact through collaboration. Professor Dermot Kenny (RCSI) leads the programme that carried out the research, Functional Diagnostics in Platelet Biology, in the BDI. He is a cardiologist and expert in thrombosis (the formation of blood clots). He approached ICHEC to address this challenge.
