As well as our undergraduate laboratories, our BIOEXPLORE research active staff members have successfully attracted significant capital funding to our department which in the last 5 years has resulted in substantial refurbishments to our research laboratories. Many state of the art bio-analytical resources have also been acquired including bio-imaging technologies, several, real-time PCR instruments, industry grade protein purification capabilites and a new bio-informatics suite. More recently our departmental staff have also participated in and secured over €4million in funding for a new multidisciplinary research centre (CREATE) which is due to begin construction in 2012.  For a more detailed analysis of our research capabilities please click hereThe Department has a number of strategically important research programmes which are operated through the BIO-EXPLORE research Centre
