- About Deakin
Chemists develop a new range of cancer therapeutics.
Cracking the cartilage riddle, Deakin scientists synthetically mimic the body's most complex lubrication system.
A new process to separate blends of cotton-polyester material provides a major breakthrough for recycling textile and other waste.
Bio-plastics could help slash global plastic consumption.
A 'Skilling the Bay' $500,000 grant will help Geelong tap into the rapidly growing nanofibre market.
Biomaterials can be derived either from nature or synthesised in the laboratory using chemical approaches which involve metallic components, polymers, ceramics or composite materials.
Biomaterials research at IFM is focused in two areas:
Our research in the area of soft biomaterials focuses on improved production of haematopoietic stem cells and development of a new method for large-scale production of short nanofibres.
In the area of metallic biomaterials, our research aims to improve the biocompatibility and bioactivity of implants such as artificial joints, bone plates and stents.
