The Irish National Health Service is set to open a new wave biology laboratory in Dublin.
The centre will house a range of medical and environmental science projects, as well as a “massive wave life sciences laboratory” which will be built with “high-tech science” and technology.
A spokesperson for the Department of Health said the lab will be a key component of the Government’s strategy for bringing a range.
“We are committed to bringing more science and technology to the health and wellbeing of our people, and we want to deliver a world-class science and research centre that is built with the same high-tech engineering and scientific expertise as the National Health Institute,” they said.
The new wave lab is expected to be operational in the next few months.
Dublin city council has said the facility is being built on an existing site and will be “an innovative and dynamic building”.
The Irish Times understands the project is expected have a capacity of around 1,000 patients.
The project will also be part of the Dublin City Council’s “Wave Life Sciences” programme.
It will be funded by the Department for Health, Environment and Rural Affairs.
Dubbo County Council said the new facility will provide a “unique opportunity for the local community and the wider public to experience a range or range of research-based activities, and a wide range of healthcare opportunities”.
The site, on the outskirts of Dublin city centre, has been “in planning since 2007” and is expected “to provide an exciting opportunity for residents and visitors to experience wave biology”.
Dublin City Council said a number of local businesses will benefit from the facility.
It has a “great mix of residents and tourists” who will be able to attend the “first wave life” lab and also attend a “wave life science education course”.
The wave lab will also house a large-scale laboratory which will allow the team to develop new technologies to support medical and biological research, it added.
The lab is due to be completed by the end of 2019.
The National Health Science Programme will be the main component of Health Minister Leo Varadkar’s plan to bring more research to the Irish public.
Dubland, a city of some 30,000 people on the western shores of the Shannon, is the second largest city in the UK.
Its population of about 2.5 million is almost double that of the rest of the country, which has an estimated population of just over 4 million.
Dubois County Council was awarded the contract for the project from the Department in May.
Dubbed “Wave Health and Life Science Lab”, the new centre will be located in the city’s old port, located at the mouth of the Dungarvan River.
It is expected that the centre will serve as a hub for health research, which is seen as crucial for the city.
Dublands health minister said the centre was “going to be one of the largest public health laboratories in Ireland”.
“We have a very active and highly engaged community, and I think they want to see a range and a mix of health research and scientific activity that is delivered in a way that is affordable and sustainable,” he said.
Dublians health minister Leo Varattier said he hoped the new wave centre would give “a lot of people a chance to experience the exciting wave life.”
“They’re going to be able see how we use this technology to study the evolution of life, the formation of cells, the function of cells and how they relate to each other, to the whole ecosystem and the human body,” he added.
“They’ll be able really to understand what they are being put in contact with.”
