AIBN's Five Pillars of Research

AIBN's Five Pillars of Research are designed to enable AIBN to innovate solutions to solve society’s problems through sustainable materials, healthy living and translational success.

Industrial biotechnology

Advanced Materials

Limitations in the physical properties of existing materials represent a major barrier to the next generation of technological advances. Our researchers work at the nexus of physics, chemistry and engineering to design advanced nanoscale materials with unique and highly valuable properties. Such ongoing advances in polymer chemistry and functional nanomaterials have positioned AIBN as a key leader in the development of future smart materials. 

Advanced materials research

AIBN's research into advanced materials includes platform technology based on the unique properties of cellulose nanofibers in spinifex.
