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.

Chiappini Lab

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

Francis-West Lab

The Francis-West lab aims to understand mechanisms of skeletal development focusing on the Dchs1-Fat4 signalling pathway, which regulates cell differentiation and morphogenesis.

Knight Group

Molecular regulation of cell behaviour during muscle regeneration and disease

Knight Lab

Aims to understand the molecular and cellular events that direct stem cells during musculoskeletal development and regeneration.
