Links to external research partners
We have established research cooperation with local Biotech companies, Suzhou University, The University of Liverpool and the Suzhou Institute of Nano-Tech and Nano-Bionics (SINANO).
The Laboratory for Advanced Materials and Sensor Technology (LAMST) is under development to link to the China-Ireland Center for Advanced Materials and Sensor Development, which was established in 2007 with the China-Ireland Collaboration Funding awarded to Professor Kim Lau and Professor Xiaoxia Liu at North Eastern University, Shenyang. The main focus of the laboratory is on novel material research and their application in catalysis and sensing.
