This theme area includes biomaterials, restorative dentistry, and oral and maxillofacial surgery.

A diverse range of research topics is currently being investigated, ranging from dental biomaterials through to microbiological responses to biomaterials and tissue engineering of bone and oral mucosa. The research is both applied and basic, and concerned to a large extent with developing biomaterials, optimising cell and tissue interactions with the materials and, where possible, correlating this with the clinical behaviour.

Research Facilities

They have worked hard to successfully establish a strong profile of researchers in Dentistry through strategic management of activity and rigorous research training programmes. A number of researchers have leading international reputations resulting from their published outputs and broader research activities and many are establishing such reputations.
