Barry McCann
Obstetrics and Gynaecology Team

Having graduated from NUI Galway in 2003 with an honours degree in Commerce, Barry gained extensive commercial and fundraising experience within the sports, not-for-profit and healthcare sectors. He upskilled throughout his working career with certified diplomas in online marketing and project management. Following 8 years as fundraising manager for regional charities, Barry held a senior management role on the commercial team of the 2016 PRO12 champions Connacht Rugby. Building strong, genuine relationships was key to Barry’s success in growing commercial partnerships and developing new income streams. Now he aims to transfer these skills to the BioInnovate Fellowship. Barry is passionate about health technology and has a flair for problem solving. He is excited to be taking part in BioInnovate and hopes to marry his commercial experience with the skills of the multi-disciplinary team to truly embrace the biodesign process and emerge with a patient-centred, value-added solution that can make a difference to global healthcare. In his spare time, Barry enjoys long distance swimming, running and being entertained by his two young children.
