Visit by SCION researcher to TCD

18 May 2022 09:00

The DeMANS team at TCD were delighted to welcome Marie Joo Le Guen (SCION) to campus when she visited on Tuesday, 17 May 2022. Dr Le Guen was on a trip to Europe and decided to hop across to Dublin. It was the first in-person meeting of any of the DeMANS partners since the beginning of the project and was a very welcome change of pace from our online meetings!

TCD and SCION Researchers (l-r) Laria Floria, Marie Joo le Guen and Mick Morris visiting AMBER and CRANN laboratories in the Naughton Institute.

On the TCD side, the visit was facilitated by Larisa Florea and Michael Morris.

As part of the visit, Dr Le Guen toured the AMBER and CRANN facilities at the Trinity Technology and Enterprise Centre, including the Advanced Microscopy Laboratory and the Additive Research Laboratory. A special thanks to Hugh Manning for showing us around! The tour then moved to the Naughton Institute on the main TCD campus, where Riley Gatensby gave a short but thorough overview of the facilities there.

Following the tours, Dr Le Guen gave a presentation on SCION and current research in additive manufacturing to a group of junior postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers. This was followed by a short talk by Dr Colm Delaney on complementary current research being undertaken at TCD. The discussion that followed showed not only the importance and relevance of the scientific objectives of the DeMANS project but also seeded conversations about the proposed secondments between SCION and TCD and the wider consortium. Now that COVID restrictions have been substantially eased, we are looking very much forward to having researchers move back and forth on secondments in order to share knowledge and expertise.

After lunch, there was just enough time to visit the Book of Kells, one of the best examples of an Irish illuminated manuscript. Our sincere thanks to the staff at the TCD Library for facilitating the visit!
