University of Limerick and the Cliffs of Moher

Today we met with our host professor and doctoral students at the University of Limerick. After, we saw the Cliffs of Moher.

Time is certainly flying by! We've had tours, met with speakers, and traveled across the country over a span of just two days! We started Monday with a guided tour of Dublin by Dr. Conor McNamara, who is a historian of modern Ireland. He covered many topics ranging from the Great Famine to the evolution of Ireland as a technology hub. Then, we were introduced to Michael Lohan of the Irish Development Authority, who furthered discussed Ireland's role as a biomedical devices hub. It was intriguing to learn more about the profound impact that the medical technology industry has had on Ireland's economy, as well as how he supports companies who wish to do business in Ireland.

Today, we traveled by bus to the University of Limerick to meet with faculty and students from the biomedical engineering department. Our host, Professor Dalton, introduced us to three of her doctoral students, who discussed their research with us. It was fascinating to see their lab and learn more about some of the amazing work they are doing relating to the genetics of cancer.

After visiting the university, we made our way to the Cliffs of Moher. It's difficult to find words to describe the beauty. It's nature at its most majestic. We were able to walk the trail to O'Brien's Tower, which is the highest point of the cliffs. The wind was fierce, and we even got hit with a little hail. Totally worth it!

We've just checked into our bed and breakfast in Doolin. Tonight, we're headed out to a local pub for some traditional Irish music and food. Then, it's on to Galway tomorrow to meet with Boston Scientific!
