40 Discoveries in Science and Health

The Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw, put the ageing process into context when he said:

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”

There is no truer example of this than the Faculty of Science and Health (FSH). The Faculty was one of the first faculties at DCU, a university that started off small but never once doubted in the importance of progress, innovation, change and play, to become the towering example of higher education we have today.

As we look to the future, the Faculty of Science and Health has no intention of slowing down. In fact, we’re just warming up!  Whether it is a four-year project to deliver safe drinking water to far-flung parts of the world, or pioneering experiments, therapy and training in the physical sciences, molecular therapeutics in cancer research, or supporting people with dementia or autism, the Faculty of Science and Health continues to work for the betterment of our planet and our people. As you read you will see how this unwavering passion for science and health has led to ground-breaking discoveries, a better understanding of our world, and continues to fuel the minds of generations of scholars.
