The Regenerative Medicine Institute (REMEDI) at NUI Galway was delighted to host a visit by winning essay writers from St Nathy’s College, Ballaghdereen, Co. Roscommon. Each of the winning students had written an essay on the topic of stem cell, outlining the history of their discovery, and their potential to revolutionise the treatment of a range of medical conditions. The winning students – Michael Raleigh (1st), Tom Murray (2nd), Mohammad Hamid (3rd), and Annie Quinlan (3rd) – and John Guilfoyle, their teacher, were treated to a tour of REMEDI’s facilities. The competition was initiated by Oonagh Redmond, a teacher at St Nathy’s, and was organised by members of the ADIPOA-2 team. Prizes were sponsored by ADIPOA-2, VISICORT, and REDDSTAR.
