  • MNS (Circuits and Systems)
  • Dr. O’Mahony’s research interests are centered around the development of advanced microfabrication and microengineering technologies that can be used to create a range of sensors and transducers for use in medical, environmental and telecommunications applications. The resulting Micro Transdermal Interface Platforms (MicroTIPs) are high-value, wearable systems that combine transdermal delivery, diagnostics, smart woundcare, self-awareness and communications capabilities. 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.
