Our Research


Our research benefits the local, national and global health economy, resulting in novel treatments and interventions.

The celebrated research scientists we collaborate with and clinicians who work at the School of Dentistry are focused on translating their research findings to improve patient care and raise educational standards.

We're delivering outcomes that make a real impact, particularly in addressing local oral health inequalities. By bringing together life scientists, clinical researchers, engineers, computer scientists and statisticians we will create much larger data sets and deliver greater outcomes towards healthy living and ageing.
