AMBER (Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research) is a Science Foundation Ireland funded centre that provides a partnership between leading researchers in materials science and industry. Materials science has been described as the science of stuff! We are researching nano and bio materials, like graphene, nanowires, collagen scaffolds - materials that will transform everyday products of the future, from mobile phones to knee implants, batteries to beer bottles. AMBER links industry to research programmes and the aim of the centre is to develop products that directly impact everyone’s quality of life such as the development of the next generation computer chips and new medical implants and pharmaceuticals that will improve patient care.
AMBER is jointly hosted in Trinity College Dublin by CRANN and the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering, in collaboration with University College Cork and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. AMBER brings together Ireland’s leading material science researchers working across the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, Bioengineering and Medicine; with an international network of collaborators and companies.
