About the Show

Ireland's scientific pioneers across the globe are making thier mark and are quietly making a significant contribution to the improvement of all of our daily lives. This series looks at some of the most interesting projects leading Irish scientists are working on and assesses what the impact may be on our lives in the future.

The selection of projects is extremely diverse and ranges from the identification of a protein which may help to arrest and even reverse the onset of Alzheimer's to the design of a camera which can picture an event in space which happened billions of years ago.

Each week the programme will focus on a specific area of life on which the Investigators are concentrating. The subjects include: Ireland in Space, Ageing, Sensors, Climate Change, Crops of the Future and the Nano Revolution
