Two innovative universities – Arizona State University (ASU) and Dublin City University (DCU), Dublin, Ireland – are joining forces to create the new international School of Biomedical Diagnostics, which will offer the first degree program of its kind. The initiative is at the cutting edge of establishing diagnostics as an independent discipline. The new school will draw from several assets of each institution. At DCU, the school will build upon the award winning M.Sc. in Biomedical Diagnostics programme based at the Biomedical Diagnostics Institute. Speaking on the announcement Prof. Richard O'Kennedy, Chair M.Sc. in Biomedical Diagnostics and Scientific Director, Biomedical Diagnostics Institute said, "This is a very exciting development. Our award winning M.Sc. in Biomedical Diagnostics is already creating the right type of graduate for the fast growing medical device industry. This international collaboration will enhance the learning experience for students, creating highly qualified graduates for the global diagnostics industry".
