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. 


Andoniadou Lab

Investigates the intrinsic and extrinsic signalling mechanisms that regulate the progenitor/stem cell pool and control cell fate decisions.

Basson Lab

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

Carpenter Lab

Studies salivary function in maintaining a normal healthy mouth. This is achieved by projects on saliva and salivary glands.

Chiappini Lab

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

Curtis Lab
