Max Planck Queensland Centre

The Max Planck Queensland Centre (MPQC) for the Materials Science of Extracellular Matrices is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science (MPG) and the Queensland University of Technology (QUT), including associate members from a number of national and international institutions.

MPQC envisions two symbiotic aims:

  • A world-leading interdisciplinary basic and applied research program in the understanding of extracellular matrices (ECMs) from a materials science viewpoint in terms of their adaptive multifunctional properties.
  • Unlocking and mentoring the potential of the upcoming 21st century leaders in bioengineering which will deliver significant scientific, societal and economic impact over this decade and into the distant future.
