Monash technology capabilities

Our technology capabilities provide our researchers and external partners with the critical infrastructure and expertise to support high-level research in the fields of biomedical science and engineering.

We offer a range of technologies and expertise. This expands our services beyond our recognised network of core technology research platforms.

Over time we expect a number of these capabilities to develop into core research platforms to provide even greater services.

  • New Biomaterial Design
    Our New Biomaterial Design capability is part of the Centre for Green Chemistry. Our two core capability areas are Cleaner Synthesis Technology and Green Biotechnology.

  • Monash Glasshouse
    We offer a range of specialised facilities for plant-based research. Our facility features 16 independently climate-controlled bays, including two quarantine bays and one potting shed.

  • ARC Centre of Excellence for Coherent X-ray Science
    We conduct research in a range of X-ray optics areas, including attosecond science and biological science.

  • Monash Corrosion, Monitoring, Mechanism and Mitigation Capability
    Our research focuses on the processes that affect the lifetime of materials and structures. We monitor and mitigate the corrosion of large scale infrastructure such as concrete and pipes. We also design protective surfaces on light weight alloys. Our research spans across four engineering departments: Chemical, Civil, Materials and Mechanical and Aerospace.

  • Geoexchange Geostructures Research Group
    Our Geosciences group within Monash Civil Engineering investigates the use of thermal active geostructures for heating and cooling of built structures. This is a more efficient and greener option with the potential to reduce green house gas emissions. Our capability includes an 18-metre bored pile instrument and state-of-the-art laboratory equipment.
