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.
- Development of a novel bioactive glass for air-abrasion to selectively remove orthodontic adhesives. Clin Oral Investig vol. 22, (4) 1839-1849.
- Predicting refractive index of fluoride containing glasses for aesthetic dental restorations. Dent Mater vol. 34, (5) e83-e88.
- In-situ NIR-laser mediated bioactive substance delivery to single cell for EGFP expression based on biocompatible microchamber-arrays. J Control Release vol. 276, 84-92.
