Postgrad receives medal

A Trinity postgraduate student has been awarded the 2010 Engineers Ireland Biomedical Research Medal for his contribution to the field of biomedical engineering research.
Kevin Moerman was selected from a shortlist of five finalists after each candidate presented their research to delegates at the annual Bioengineering in Ireland conference in Dublin. He was presented with a commemorative Engineers Ireland medal and a cheque for €1000, sponsored by Georgia Tech Ireland.
Dr Kevin O’Kelly, Deputy Director for the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering chaired this year’s conference and the keynote address was delivered by Professor Rose Anne Kenny, head of Medical Gerontology at TCD and Director and lead investigator for the first Irish Longitudinal Study on Ageing.  Professor Kenny’s address reinforced the theme of the conference which promoted bioengineering for better health.
