‘Transformations’ exhibition at the Science Gallery, Trinity College, Pearse St. Dublin  from Thur 27th Nov - Tue 2nd December, 2008 by the Higher Education Authority (HEA)

Launched in 1998, the Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions (PRTLI) ushered in a new era for research and innovation and fundamentally altered the research landscape in higher education.

The ‘Transformations’ exhibition celebrates a decade of achievement by showcasing some of the research that impacts on our day-to-day lives. Exhibits are fully interactive and designed to engage with the general public.

The Hamilton Institute and its IMMT group will participate in the event demonstrating two Irish innovations in medical image handling, a collaboration between NUIM, RCSI and UCC as part of a National Biophotonics and Imaging Platform (NBIP). The first describes how automation of a centuries old idea – the optical microscope – can revolutionise how we analyse images, and the second one describes how an Irish computer science invention will allow medical and biological research images be shared by multidisciplinary teams all over Ireland.
