Research groups and labs

 

The Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences promotes cutting edge collaborative research within an interdisciplinary context.

We have research groups and labs which have secured positions at the forefront of international scientific research and which make major contributions to teaching, training and research by inspiring and nurturing the next generation of scientific leaders. 

 

Basson Lab

Research that is primarily focused on chromatin remodelling factors implicated in neurodevelopmental disorders.

Bergholt Lab

A multidisciplinary research team working on label-free bioimaging.

Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology

Our research goes beyond the mouth. If we understand how the entire face and head forms, we can repair damage and regenerate cells. If we unravel the causes of diseases, we can treat patients successfully. If we solve these problems, our discoveries will improve health worldwide.

Chiappini Lab

Nanotechnology, bioengineering and cell biology to develop functional materials that direct cell behaviour, for applications in regenerative and precision medicine.

Deb Lab

Biomaterials for regenerative medicine & dentistry.

Centre for Dental Education

Our curriculum is developed and taught alongside our internationally renowned researchers. We have an academic education pathway which recognises the importance of research in education and its role in developing curriculums. Science is embedded all the way through the curriculum, and students are taught by leading research academics.

Dental Public Health

We are an international group of experts in public health, epidemiology and health services. We work collaboratively with colleagues around the world to conduct mixed methods research aiming to improve population oral health, reduce oral health inequalities, and strengthen the organisation and delivery of dental services.
