Dr. Flanagan is a graduate of Anatomy from NUI, Galway (2000) and was awarded a Ph.D. (Anatomy) in 2005. He subsequently took up a post-doctoral position at the Cardiovascular Tissue Engineering Laboratory, Helmholtz Institute for Biomedical Engineering at Aachen University in Germany, where he co-ordinated a project to develop autologous heart valve prostheses for surgical implantation. Dr. Flanagan joined the UCD School of Medicine in 2008 as Lecturer in Human Anatomy, and heads the Tissue Engineering Research Group at the School. The Tissue Engineering Research Group is focussed on the development of next-generation implants by combining nanotechnology and tissue engineering methods, with a particular focus on living, cardiovascular devices for the treatment of both paediatric and adult populations.
