Short Bio: 
Dr Maurice N Collins is a lecturer above the bar at the Faculty of Science and Engineering in the School of Engineering at the University of Limerick. He is a member of both the Bernal Institute and the Health Research Institute at UL. The principal focus of his research group is on the structure/property/processing relationships of bio-based polymers in the application areas of regenerative medicine, drug delivery, and pharmaceutics.  Maurice has a strong track record in attracting funding to enable his research (>€8 million). He is the lead PI and coordinator of the H2020 LIBRE consortium, which focuses on next generation biomaterials. His research group is interdisciplinary including Materials Scientists, Chemists, Biologists, Pharmacists and Engineers, with current areas of interest including, but not limited to, the development of bioinks for 3D bioprinting, the development of multifunctional nanomaterials and immunomodulatory materials. Maurice currently serves as an editor of  Carbohydrate Polymers (IF 5.1) and the International Journal of Biological Macromolecules (IF 3.9). He is the course director of the MSc in Biomedical Device Materials.
