Direct dental cell reprogramming for tooth regeneration
*Please note, this project is self-funded*
Supervisor: Professor Paul Sharpe
Duration: Four years
Application deadline: Open until suitable candidate is found
Reference number: 2017/DI/08
When dentine and underlying odontoblasts are damaged, a repair process is initiated that involves the recruitment of cells from the pulp. We have identified a specific cell homing process whereby the progeny of mesenchymal stem cells migrate towards sites of tooth damage.
To identify the signalling pathways that act to recruit dental mesenchymal stem cells to sites of tissue damage.
