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're working on the answers.

Our approach – merging bioengineering and nanoscience – is purposely disruptive. It allows us to look at things differently and solve problems in a way that others can't.

Our 400-strong team works closely with industry to translate cutting-edge science into practical solutions to help shift global reliance on fossil fuels; create healthier communities; build stronger, more sustainable economies; and create a more sustainable footprint overall.

We develop the platform technologies that can be applied across a range of industries from pharma and biotech to waste disposal, manufacturing, energy and transportation.

By translating science into commercially-viable solutions we make it easier and faster for our valued industry partners and government to get to market. 

Established in 2004, we are one of the largest institutes of our kind globally, and are proud to call The University of Queensland home. 

Our experience and track-record, combined with access to the world’s best minds and facilities at the University of Queensland, means our potential and impact – and that of our partners – is unlimited.
