At UCD Institute for Discovery our mission is to foster interdisciplinary research and cultivate community. The search for solutions to the Covid-19 crisis could not be more transdisciplinary, uniting researchers, designers, doctors and makers the world over. One of these is award-winning engineer Colin Keogh, 31, who is leading the development of an open-source 3D printed ventilator that could potentially address shortages and save lives. In 2017 he was listed in Forbes 30 under 30 in science and healthcare and this year he completed his Engineering PhD in Creative Technology Innovation at UCD.
