Dr Conor O’Mahony

Funded Investigator

Dr Conor O’Mahony is a Senior Research Scientist with the Tyndall National Institute, and an Adjunct Professor at Chongqing Technology and Business University, China. His team is focussed on the development of Micro Transdermal Interface Platforms (MicroTIPs) – high-value, wearable systems that combine transdermal delivery, diagnostics, self-awareness and communications capabilities. For use in theranostics and advanced woundcare, these ‘smart patches’ interact with the outermost skin layers in a minimally invasive manner, and will blur the lines between implantable medical devices and the current generation of wearable electronics.

Dr O’Mahony is a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, has published over sixty peer-reviewed journal papers and given numerous conference presentations worldwide.
