Materials Research Institute


Welcome to the Materials Research Institute

Modelling Characterisation Processing Chemistry Healthcare Opto-electronics Sensors Lightweighting Energy

A centre of excellence providing the platform to support dynamic inter-disciplinary materials research, in collaboration with academia, research councils and industry professionals.

Queen Mary University of London has a strong tradition of materials-based research. The creation of the Materials Research Institute (MRI) brings together a range of expertise from within several Schools: Engineering and MaterialsPhysics and AstronomyBiological and Chemical Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes.
