Welcome to the Materials Research Network

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 Network (MRN) brings together a range of expertise from within several Schools: Engineering and MaterialsPhysical and Chemical SciencesBiological and Behavioural Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes: Energy, Lightweighting, Sensors, Opto-electronics and Healthcare.
