Working with us
Designed as a resource for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and larger companies, the Chemistry Clinic welcomes access to our exceptional facilities, expert advice and talented student cohort to benefit your project.
We can directly support your project with scientific guidance or assess your current processes and materials for further development.
An initial FREE consultation helps us identify the needs of your project. Following consultation, appropriate methods and techniques are carried out to reach project deliverables. For longer term projects and collaborations, a timeline and contract are put in place to protect your intellectual property and agreed upon provisions. Open communication is nurtured between the Chemistry Clinic and you -the industrial partner- while work is conducted.
With direction from a specialist academic relevant to your project, our skilled Masters students will conduct any lab work.
