I was delighted to read this morning that Shimmer Research will be one of the many new companies making the move to Glasnevin as part of DCU’s new Innovation Campus.

The company, which has 20 staff located in Dublin and Boston, as well as clients in more than 60 countries, is exactly the kind of highly-skilled, technologically-driven employment that we want to attract to both Glasnevin and Dublin.

Shimmer Research is a medical technology company which has created Shimmer, a small wireless sensor platform that can record and transmit physiological and kinematic data in real-time. This has a range of medical uses and, going forward, will potentially usher in a new era of data-based medical analytics that is accessible and affordable.

As such, I am glad to welcome them to the area and look forward to welcoming a whole host of other businesses to the area in the coming weeks and months ahead. You can find out more about Shimmer here: http://www.shimmer-research.com/
