New Celtic alliance
Four institutions from Wales and Ireland have launched the Celtic Alliance for NanoHealth (CAN) aimed at developing cutting-edge healthcare. Swansea University will be the lead partner in the alliance, which is backed by £765,000 from the European Regional Development Fund under the Ireland Wales Cross Border programme.
Based at the Universityís Centre for NanoHealth, the partnership will pool resources with University College Dublinís Centre for BioNano Interactions, Trinity College Dublinís Institute of Molecular Medicines and Centre for Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices, and Dublin City Universityís Biomedical Diagnostics Institute and Nanobiophotonics and Imaging Centre. Each boasts specific areas of expertise in nanohealth and the venture is designed to help companies on either side of the Irish Sea stay at the forefront of innovation and growth. www.celticnano.eu
