Our growing team of 100 researchers are driven by a diverse range of interests – from tissue engineering, to techniques that have the potential to restore hearing loss.
Working together, we take our research beyond the lab with clinical trials, screenings to spot abnormalities earlier, and information for parents of children with birth defects.
Through sharing our discoveries with students, we show them how we’re moving the field forward. As the next generation of dentists, they’ll be in the position to apply these new techniques in practice and use our treatments to cure disease.

"A solid understanding of genetics and developmental biology is vital in our field. To build the skills of future generations of clinicians, we’re making sure our research has a strong impact on our teaching. Our discoveries lead to new tools and techniques, and dentists need to be clued up on the latest technologies to be able to keep their patients informed."
