We are delighted that our Dr Deirdre Twomey has won the Cure and Care award at the jENS 2017 Conference in Venice on 1 November.

The jENS 2017 conference is a joint meeting of all the European Neonatal societies, the largest European Neonatal Research meeting to date.

BiHIVE’s Psychology Postdoctoral Researcher Deirdre Twomey was chosen to present her research abstract from the >800 submitted to the jENS conference and she was nominated for the Young Investigator Award.


Nine nominees presented their research during a special session at the conference and Deirdre won the Cure and Care Award for her presentation “Touchscreens for cognitive assessment of toddlers”.

The presentation allowed Deirdre to engage with key stakeholders and world leaders in the field of neurology, brain injury, and neurodevelopment and will lead to collaborations and future research.
