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. 

 

Di Silvio Lab

Understanding the biology of cell-material interfaces and develop novel therapies for musculoskeletal regeneration and repair using tissue engineering strategies

Erosive Tooth Wear

Our world leading team researches the detection, diagnosis, measurement, prevention and treatment of erosive tooth wear.

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.

Garnett Lab

The Garnett Lab investigates molecular mechanisms that promote bacterial disease. In particular we are interested in biofilm formation and other key virulence traits that allow bacteria to establish infections and persist within the host/environment.

Gentleman Lab

The Gentleman lab works at the interface of stem cell biology, chemistry and materials science to develop innovative biomaterials for regenerative medicine.

Green Lab

The Green Laboratory investigates tissue morphogenesis and the action of morphogens.

Centre for Host-Microbiome Interactions

Millions of microorganisms live in and on our bodies forming microbiomes on different surfaces. Researchers in the Centre for Host Microbiome Interactions study our relationship with these bacteria and fungi in health or in oral and systemic diseases such as periodontitis, candidiasis, oral cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Knight Group

Molecular regulation of cell behaviour during muscle regeneration and disease
