Micro and Nano Systems
The Micro and Nanosystems group research focuses on the development of novel, porous, environmentally friendly materials as well as the development of molecular diagnostic technology for a healthier community.
The development of micro and nano systems, such as molecular diagnostics, nanoencapsulation for targeted drug delivery and nanoporous membrane materials is important to address future biomedical and environmental challenges.
The group focuses on the following technologies:
- Membrane fabrication and characterisation by developing membranes with aligned nanostructure for improved performance.
- The development of a point-of-care diagnostic device.
- Micro and nano encapsulated drug delivery systems.
- Molecular dynamic simulation.
