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. 


Green Lab

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

Naglik Lab

The Naglik Lab employs molecular, cellular, immunological, biophysical and structural biology to investigate host-fungal interactions.

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.

Sharpe Group

Sharpe Group Dental Tissue Regeneration and Repair

Lehner Lab

The Lehnher Lab introduced Immunology nationally and globally to investigate the mechanism and prevention of dental and oral diseases.

Knight Lab

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