NFB Short-listed for Two Irish Laboratory Awards

8th December 2014

The Network of Excellence for Functional Biomaterials (NFB) was short-listed for three categories in the Irish Laboratory Awards 2014: Bio Science Laboratory of the Year, Medical Laboratory of the Year and Research Laboratory of the Year.

These awards are judged on the originality of research, innovation, and quality of publications and patents. The awards recognise the success and achievements of Ireland’s internationally renowned scientists and focus on the on-going work of Irish scientists to grow and develop sustainable, globally competitive research.

Irish Comedian Neil Delamere hosted the evening which saw the science industry come together in the Hilton DoubleTree in Dublin. The Gala Dinner attracted nearly 300 representatives from across Ireland, to celebrate the best the industry has to offer. There were sixteen categories with over 100 entries in the awards. The prestigious trophies were handed over to winners while the beaten finalists were compensated with a certificate of recognition.
