TOWARDS SUSTAINABLE NANO-COMPOSITE BIO-ENGINEERING BY
Sitting at the interface between engineering, physics, chemistry and computational modelling.
We develop bespoke, cutting-edge technologies for use in research labs and at point-of-care or in-the-field to reveal new information about biological and chemical systems.
From the nano-scale up to complete biological systems, nature is complex and always changing.
We use novel techniques to help
understand the bio-physics
underlying nature and how
humankind interacts with it.
Sustainable soft-materials, composite of synthetic and natural components offer an exciting evolution in fields ranging from drug-delivery to bio-engineering & manufacturing.
We are able to tune their function to specific goals by understanding the interaction between components.
Our research is focused on understanding fundamental interactions in nature and using this information to address global healthcare, manufacturing, materials and forensic challenges. We are proud to be an international research group with collaborators in industry and academia across 6 continents.
The group first formed in Grenoble (France), we returned to the UK, initially at the University of Dundee in 2016 and have recently moved to the University of Kent. We are a rapidly growing team and currently have a number of opportunities at undergraduate and postgraduate level for researchers with a background in Engineering, Physics, Chemistry, Forensics, Biology, Medicine and Computing.
These are currently being updated with more information, but you can soon find out more about our group, our ongoing projects and the current opportunities to join us by following the links below...
