A Picture of Health 2008

A total of 68 research projects and programmes were completed in 2007 representing a total HRB investment of €11.5 million. The 17 stories highlighted in a Picture of Health provide a snapshot of how Irish health research is leading to better health care.


This year's book includes stories that range from potential new solutions for snoring, to how exercise can keep our brains young, and from new findings that could provide a cure for thyroid eye disease to the benefits of monitoring baby brainwaves. The stories captured represent the work of 50 researchers in 13 hospitals and academic institutions across Ireland.
