Bioengineering and the environment
We are applying bioengineering skills to a range of environmental problems, such as foaming in wastewater treatment. We are also applying synthetic biology for environmental sensing.
Dairy/food science and engineering
What makes a good Cheddar cheese crumble? What makes buffalo milk products different? What happens to cheese as it ages and how do our gut bacteria respond to the foods we eat? These are all questions we are seeking to answer using platform technologies.
Proteins and materials science
We are interested in the development of new materials for a range of applications. These materials include advanced polymeric materials that deliver anti-inflammatory peptides for tissue engineering or drugs for the treatment of cancer.
