In the fifth in our series of NUI Galway Research Videos for 2016, Dilip Thomas, a final year PhD student in the CÚRAM Centre for Research in Medical Devices, describes the structures and functions of the human brain.

Dilip’s current research interest in CÚRAM is to develop ‘stem cell factories’, a next generation biomedical device that enables entrapped stem cells to produce the correct signalling molecules for repairing and regenerating blood vessels in vascular diseases. Dilip also recently took part in Famelab Ireland, and you can see his talk for the finals of that competition here.
