AMBER (Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research)

AMBER is a Science Foundation Ireland funded centre that provides a partnership between leading researchers in material science and industry. It is jointly hosted in Trinity College Dublin (TCD) by CRANN (The Center for Research on Adaptive Nanostructure and Nanodevices) and the Trinity Centre for Bioengineering (TCBE), in collaboration with University College Cork and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). The AMBER centre delivers internationally leading materials research that is industrially and clinically informed with outputs including new discoveries and devices in ICT, medical device and industrial technology sectors.

AMBER has a strong emphasis on linking 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 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.
