About

MPhil and PhD supervision is available in:

  • micro and nanoscale design, fabrication, manufacturing and manipulation
  • top-down and bottom-up fabrication
  • nanoscale materials and electronics
  • applications of nano and microelectronics in medical science, including cell biology, neuroscience, human genetics and ageing
  • polymers
  • self-assembly
  • chemistry of nanoscale systems
  • biomolecular engineering - microfluids, bioprobes and biosensor systems, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and devices

Many research projects cross the disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. Depending on the source of funding, your project may involve collaboration with an industry partner or you may work in a team with a number of students to develop an idea to the point where, following your degree, you can create a spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.

There are opportunities for you to develop your business awareness and skills, with training in topics such as intellectual property protection. nanoLAB also hosts regular research seminars, conferences and workshops.
