MSSI develops and characterise materials from the atomic to the macroscopic scale, providing new materials, processes and applications. MSSI has four priority research themes:

We also have undercutting themes

  • Characterisation - Underpins research across all areas in MSSI and relates to the development and exploitation of characterisation techniques to examine the behaviour of materials from the nano- to the macro-scale.

The application of the research is particularily in

  • Health
  • Energy
  • Transport
  • Clean Technology

The Institute houses over 200 researchers drawn from a range of scientific (chemistry, biochemistry, physics, materials science) and engineering disciplines. MSSI houses the following centres and programmes:
