Solving serious problems in health, energy and the bioeconomy

Urgent solutions are needed for the way our global community generates and uses energy, engages with our environment, and deals with serious health issues. 

At the AIBN we are working on the answers.





Tough problems call for a new way of looking at the world. Our approach – merging bio-engineering and nano-science – is purposely disruptive. It allows us to look at things differently and solve problems in a way others cannot. 

We are solving tomorrow’s problems today.  We work closely with industry to translate cutting-edge science into practical, game-changing solutions.

  • At the AIBN, we know some of the most spectacular sights in science start out as specs on a glass slide, only seen when magnified. Which is why our researchers mark National Science Week with a competition to find the best image taken under a microscope.
  • The development of a new, non-flammable electrolyte material could mean a safer and cheaper alternative to lithium-ion batteries and – thanks to the work of University of Queensland researchers – another step towards a cleaner energy future. 
  • Tiny nano-particles less than a thousandth of a millimetre in size are providing a promising new method to protect sheep against deadly flystrike, according to University of Queensland research.
