Welcome to the Ahearne Lab at Trinity College Dublin
Blindness resulting from disease, physical injury or chemical burns affects millions worldwide and has a considerable economic and social impact on the lives of people across Europe. Based at the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering in Trinity College Dublin, the main objective of our research is to develop novel tissue engineering, biomaterial and cell based therapies to restore vision. Our primary focus is on corneal regeneration and the development of an artificial corneal implant.
