Congratulations to Jack O’Meara who has just been announced as the Irish Regional Winner in The Undergraduate Awards 2016. The award was based on the work Jack carried out as part of his 4th year project in 2014/2015 and ranked him as the best Irish student in the category of Engineering and the Built Environment. The Undergraduate Awards is the world’s largest academic awards programme, identifying leading creative thinkers through their undergraduate coursework across all disciplines. Jack’s 4th year project developed both functionalised and non-functionalised poly (lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) scaffolds for the purpose of tendon repair. The project was supervised by Dr. Dimitrios Zeugolis. Jack will receive his award at the Undergraduate Awards Global Summit 2016, which takes place in Dublin in November.
