Potential new therapies for osteoporosis made possible by Trinity team discovery

The research into bone renewing mechanisms could be harnessed to treat osteoporosis

Trinity researchers at AMBER (the centre for Advanced Materials and Bioengineering Research) and the Schools of Engineering and Pharmacy have discovered the long sought after mechanism by which exercise aids bone growth, which could help to develop new therapies for

Student engagement during lockdown took hardest hit in DEIS schools, finds Trinity study

Teachers suggest lack of resources and support at home as responsible for reduced engagement

A survey of secondary school teachers in Ireland about the impact of the pandemic on students’ learning carried out by a team of Trinity researchers found that lack of student interest, lack of home supports, and limited access to devices

Trinity engineers model real-world driving emissions for vehicles in Dublin

Discrepancies between laboratory results and actual emissions are affecting CO2 targets

Emissions from in-use vehicles in Dublin are to be measured and modelled by a team of Trinity engineers to address discrepancies between estimated emission levels and actual levels from real-world driving. 

In light of climate change and increasing air pollution

Trinity researchers improve solar panel efficiency, reducing costs and carbon footprint

The cooling mechanism developed could make green energy a more viable solution

Trinity researchers from the School of Physics and the School of Engineering have been granted funding to further develop innovative cooling technology for solar panels. 

Solar panels provide a greener alternative to other energy sources with much higher carbon footprints,

The Trinity Swift Project

Trinity postgraduates are working to return native bird species to campus

The swift is a migratory bird which spends around four months of every year in climates like Ireland’s. For many years, swifts were a frequent feature of the Trinity skyline. Most closely related to hummingbirds, they also behave similarly to
