As populations age and health costs rise, technology-based health care solutions are more crucial than ever. At the Institute for Biomedical Materials and Devices (IBMD), we’re rising to the challenge. Our research is about transforming advances in photonics and materials into revolutionary biomedical technologies. It responds directly to the needs of patients and health professionals, and provides critical support to the global health care system.
Collaboration is key to our success. We work closely with researchers and R&D partners across the globe, creating new opportunities for intellectual enquiry and building an extensive international academic and industry network.
Led by acclaimed researchers across the nanotechnology and biomedical fields, we’re delivering interdisciplinary and international scientific research across five key themes:
IBMD will be a world leader in delivering physical science solutions that address the needs of the health industry. To do this, we will advance the design and development of biomedical devices that respond to current and future global health needs, and nurture the next generation of research leaders in our field.
IBMD’s mission is to:
- lead photonics and materials sciences to provide innovative solutions for biomedical industry needs
- support the development of ECR/MCR research fellows and high-profile professorial fellows, enabling their leadership of international, interdisciplinary and industry-driven science.
- create a collaborative environment to train the next generation of highly-skilled industry professionals.
