Welcome to the Materials Research Institute
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 Materials, Physics and Astronomy, Biological and Chemical Sciences, and Dentistry to create a coherent interdisciplinary activity focused on five key research themes.
- Crafting of functional biomaterials by directed molecular self-assembly of triple helical peptide building blocks. Interface Focus vol. 7, (6)
- Reply to ?Comment on ?Muon spin relaxation study of spin dynamics in poly(triarylamine)?? Synthetic Metals vol. 234, 177-179.
