We live in exciting times as our ability to look down to and manipulate at the atomic scale allows for tantalising prospects. New scientific discoveries are made every day, and AIBN has proven to be one of the world leaders in turning these discoveries into applications for better health and sustainable solutions for energy, manufacturing and more. Many technologies developed under AIBN’s roof play a significant role in shaping our society and environment for the better.

In 2015 with the stepping down of Inaugural Director Professor Peter Gray, AIBN saw the end of an era that started with its foundation in 2002. 

I now have the honour to further develop this Institute with its proven reputation for research excellence, its world class facilities, and its talented cohort of staff and students.
