Success Story | University Of Queensland, MCR 502 WESP

Shearing is believing!

The University of Queensland’s Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN) is an integrated multi-disciplinary research institute bringing together world-class researchers and cutting-edge technology with a focus on translational research. Based at The University of Queensland (St. Lucia campus, Brisbane, Australia), their work is underpinned by AIBN’s “Five Pillars of Research”, which cover stem cell ageing and regenerative engineering, precision nanomedicine, advanced materials, agriculture nanotechnology, and advanced biomanufacturing.

Professor Alan Rowan is performing his research at the interface of chemistry and biology with seminal and pioneering work on processive catalysis and functional self-assembly. His latest scientific achievement has been the development of the first truly biomimetic hydrogel which mimics the mechanical and functional properties of the extracellular membrane. This work has in part been made possible with the construction of a novel high-resolution instrument, the Anton Paar MCR 502 WESP confocal-rheometer.
