In 2012 the Polymer Science Group moved into a new purpose built research laboratory overlooking the picturesque university campus. The $2.7m facility, occupying 500 square metres, includes a wet chemistry laboratory, instrument rooms, a climate controlled water lab, membrane casting room, tissue engineering laboratory, meeting room and office space. The new facility is capable of supporting both staff and students in one location.
