Biomaterials and Medical Devices and Drug Delivery Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

The Biomaterials and Medical Devices and Drug Delivery Research and Enterprise Group aims to provide material based solutions to emerging global health and environmental priorities. In broad terms we undertake research into the structure, design and functional performance of natural and synthetically derived pure and composite biomaterials with diagnostic or therapeutic impact on living systems.

Our research is organised into the overlapping research areas of nanostructured biomaterials, smart and bioresponsive biomaterials and the biointerface. Key strengths are in the blend of fundamental and applied research involving international innovation networks with academic, industrial and clinical partners to maximise research training potential and translational impact. This allows a range of diverse and multidisciplinary research interests surrounding the structure, design and functional performance of advanced materials for use in biological and environmental systems. The applications for these materials range from medical device technologies and tissue constructs, nanotechnology, drug delivery systems, cardiovascular stenting, biosensor systems in disease diagnosis, ophthalmic biomaterials, materials which moderate host response biology, environmental decontamination and smart textile design.
