Research at Bradford has resulted in many successful products being brought to the market.Our commercial work
Advanced Materials Engineering
Advanced Materials Engineering (AME) focus is on structuring advanced polymeric and biomedical materials via processing, with associated modelling, for:
- high added-value products and methodologies and therapies aimed primarily at health and wellbeing
- resource efficient materials, enhancing the value of feedstocks
Located in the world-class 4000 square meters Polymer Interdisciplinary Research Centre at Bradford, AME builds on decades of Polymer IRC research and knowledge transfer strengths whilst utilising its leading edge facilities. It is lead by Professor Phil Coates, FREng who is also the Director of the UK Polymer IRC UK network.
The AME Centre focuses extensive 'smart materials' expertise associated with the Polymer IRC and beyond, into the growth areas of medical and biomedical products and advanced materials for other high added value applications, and the developing area of sustainable materials.
Our combination of expertise and cutting edge equipment makes us unique in the field of polymer micro and nano technology.About our facilities
