Intelligent Polymer Research Institute

IPRI lab tourStudent open Day

Join us at our Student Open Day on 17th September 2014 and let our staff and students show you how ACES will help advance your materials science career.

Dr Cathal O'ConnellCongratulations to our graduates!

 The ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) celebrates the graduation of two Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) PhD candidates this week, Dr Cathal O’Connell and Dr Dorna Esrafilzadeh.

Prof Gordon Wallace A good yarn powers implantable biomedical devices 

 Implantable biomedical devices, such as insulin pumps, powered by glucose in our blood rather than by batteries are a step closer to reality following an advance involving IPRI researchers. 

The Intelligent Polymer Research Institute (IPRI) is a key research strength at the University of Wollongong and is the lead node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES) and lead node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) - Materials node.

Professor Gordon Wallace and his team at IPRI are recognised internationally as world leaders in the development of 'intelligent' materials and nanotechnology.  

IPRI is renowned for expertise in the electrochemistry of organic conductors; especially when those conductors are used in the applications of artificial muscles, photovoltaics, batteries, and biomedical applications.
