We work at the materials-biology interface with applications in water treatment processes, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals. We have particular expertise in (1) membrane technology and (2) bacterial adhesion/biofilms. Our work spans fundamental research (funded by the European Research Council, Horizon 2020, SFI & IRC) to applied research (funded by Enterprise Ireland and Industry partners). Our research has been commercialised through a UCD spin-out company, OxyMem


We are an interdisciplinary research group under the leadership of Prof Eoin Casey. We attract visiting researchers from around the world and are always keen to expand our team with new students and researchers. We have a number of exciting collaborations and are always keen to explore new interactions, participate in new academic collaborations and develop new commercial opportunities with industry.
