Professor Seamas Donnelly

HIHI PI, Trinity College Dublin | Trinity College

As Professor of Medicine and Director for Global Relations at the School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin, Seamas has a long standing interest in Connected Health and in particular evaluating early stage technologies with regards to assessing quality of life of patients remotely. He strongly believes that the adoption of these novel technologies will change the way we practice medicine.  It will empower patients and allow each to become partners in their own care.  Seamas believes that HIHI will facilitate the evaluation and adoption of these technologies for Ireland and improve care for all our patients.

Seamas has generated over €40 million in grant funding and has been awarded an honorary Professorship from the University of Edinburgh for international leadership in Translational Medicine. He is currently an SFI Investigator Programme grant holder and leads the Precision Medicine initiative within Trinity College Dublin.
