Materials research at MMU focuses on the production of novel materials and their properties and the modification of surfaces for a wide range of applications. Our work is highly multi-disciplinary and is strongly linked to research groups in Engineering and Healthcare Science.
Our research brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers with world-leading experts in polymer technology, surface engineering, microbiology, advanced materials, food technology and dental technology. It provides a forum for unique collaborative research activities within the materials and surface science fields. We also have strong collaborative relationships with industry and academic groups both within the UK and worldwide.
Research is organised into three main groups:
- Surface Engineering
- Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology
- Organic Polymer Materials
