As well as being a member of a research group, many of our staff work in subject specific Research Centres. Some research centres are based wholly within our school, whereas others also have members from other schools, from other universities or from industrial companies.
The Centre for Process Integration (CPI) within the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science of The University of Manchester, is a world leader in the field of conceptual process design.
The Knowledge Centre for Materials Chemistry is a virtual centre of expertise providing multi-disciplinary research and innovative knowledge transfer based on world class capabilities in applied materials chemistry.
The CNM, established in 1995, originally as the UMIST Centre for Microporous Materials UCMM (then Centre for Microporous Materials, CMM, and now Centre for Nanoporous Materials, CNM, within The University of Manchester) is a joint initiative between the Schools of Chemistry and CEAS (Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science) with industry to create a Centre of Excellence in the field of nanoporous materials.
The MCISB is intended to provide a hub for cutting-edge systems biology research in the Manchester area, acting as a focal point for the creation of the necessary ideas and infrastructure, and for establishing new methods and routines.
Focusing on advanced quantitative approaches to specific biotechnology challenges at the interface between medicine and biology and the physical sciences, engineering, mathematics and computation the MIB enjoys a unique pluralistic and open research culture that is supported by world-class infrastructure.
Researchers from different disciplines are working to create a dynamic environment for the development and implementation of novel and exciting ideas across a diverse range of scientific fields.
The University of Manchester and Greater Manchester NHS and Primary Care Organisations have joined forces to create MIMIT™ - a new and exciting initiative which facilitates collaborations between clinicians, scientists, engineers and industry to develop innovative technology for patient benefit. MIMIT™ seizes opportunities to enable clinical problems to be identified more readily and, most importantly, improve patient outcomes by bringing innovative technology developments to fruition.
The Dalton Nuclear Institute at The University of Manchester has established the most advanced academic nuclear research capability in the UK and is a leading centre for higher learning in nuclear science and engineering.
The Centre for Nuclear Energy Technology (C-NET) delivers industrial research which supports the civil nuclear programme through the development of current and future nuclear reactor technologies.
