We are seeking researcher to develop novel bacterial cellulose reinforcement architecture to maximise shock absorbance, as well as impact resistance. This project is funded through the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and builds upon the vast knowledge and know-how on the design of bacterial cellulose-reinforced polymer composites and the recent successful preliminary research conducted by the same research team on enhancing the impact resistant of acrylic with bacterial cellulose.
