The two elements are firstly development of bespoke, advanced and functional materials for specific industrial applications and secondly on the use of micro and nanomanufacturing to create devices that have high density and enhanced functionality.
In the case of advanced and functional materials the focus is on nanomaterials and materials for eco-design. Professor Simon Hodgson has worked extensively in developing surface coatings for stainless steel to impart high temperature corrosion resistance to steel components.
Preparing ceramic coatings via sol-gel methods, Professor Hodgson’s group has demonstrated superior corrosion resistance compared to other traditional manufacturing techniques. His research also investigates improved production methods of tungsten oxide thin films used in energy saving smart-windows.
Professor Maria Olea focuses on preparing heterogeneous catalysts and optimising their performance by modelling the surface processes that occur during catalytic reactions. There is a particular focus on the development of catalysts for use in environmental applications such as the production of chemicals and fuels from biomass feedstocks, treating waste water and reducing emissions of volatile organic compounds.
There is a particular focus on miniaturised, high density and functional microfluidic devices for chemical and biological processing.
Examples include a point-of-care device to aid diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis and a microfluidic bioreactor array for cytotoxic drug testing of breast cell line.

The Centre for Resource Efficient Manufacturing Systems (REMS), is a collaborative partnership between Teesside University, the Institute for Manufacturing at Cambridge University and the Centre for Process Innovation (CPI).
Based at Teesside University, REMS will research and investigate manufacturing processes and supply chains to help companies improve production processes by reducing emissions, saving time, reducing cost and minimising the resources they use.
