IPRI researchers are amongst thoses awarded $3.4 million from the National Health and Medical Research Council to embark on a range of practical research projects from reducing sedentary behaviour in children to developing intelligent conducting polymers to treat schizophrenia.
IPRI Research Fellow Dr Robert Gorkin III was among the winners in of UOW’s first ever ‘Pitch’ competition. A total of $30,000 in cash prizes was recently awarded bright, energetic and entrepreneurial-minded students and staff to turn their ideas into reality through seed funding via cash prizes.
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.
