AIBN works with industry to translate cutting-edge science

From breakthroughs in personalised medicine; to the creation of clean energy systems; and the use of biological materials to reduce reliance on fossil fuels - the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) is making an impact and solving some of society’s biggest challenges.

Founded in 2004, the AIBN, proudly based within The University of Queensland, is uniquely outward facing and fosters strong industry partnerships. We work closely with our partners, translating cutting edge science from the lab bench to the production line.

Working within the AIBN’s labs are some of the world’s most recognised academic experts, along with nine of the country’s most innovative research infrastructure facilities. All of which position the AIBN perfectly to enable the future.

When it comes to precision nanomedicine, advanced biomanufacturing and nanoengineered materials, if you dream it, we can do it.
