  New antimicrobial strategies for dental materials
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round
Oral bacteria can attach to many dental materials to form biofilms. In order to achieve long-term success of dental restorations, it is important to render dental materials with antimicrobial properties.
  A novel approach to developing rechargeable fluoride containing polymeric dental materials
  Prof M Patel, Dr N Karpukhina
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Fluoride has the potential to inhibit caries by promoting remineralisation of carious lesions and acid eroded enamel.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Nanostructure surveys of natural and biomimetic dental tissues by 3D SAXS tensor tomography
  Dr T Sui
Applications accepted all year round
This 3.5-year studentship is part of a funded project on 3D SAXS tensor tomography being jointly undertaken by the University of Surrey (Dr Tan Sui), Chalmers University of Technology (Dr Marianne Liebi) and Diamond Light Source (Prof Nick Terrill & Dr Andy Smith).
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
  Dental and facial reduction during human evolution and its impact on food processing.
  Dr L Fitton
Application Deadline: 4 February 2019
During the evolution of Homo several major changes have occurred in masticatory form including a reduction in facial prognathism and a reduction in dental size.
  Cellular responses to radiation curing of resin-composite materials
  Dr R M Shelton, Prof W Palin, Dr P Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
Ultraviolet and visible light energy is routinely used for crosslinking a multitude of biomaterial applications ranging from hydrogels for tissue engineering and drug delivery, laser activated surgical adhesives to resin-based composite dental restoratives.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round
Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Mapping the Spatial and Temporal Progression of Enamel Biomineralisation using Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction
  Dr M Al-Jawad, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Human dental enamel formation begins in utero and for most teeth takes several years to complete. It is a complex biological, physicochemical process where mineralisation progresses heterogeneously in space and time.
  Iontophoresis to deliver corticosteroids across buccal mucosal using hydrogel as delivery systems
  Prof M Patel, Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Topical delivery of drugs to treat oral mucosal disease is often challenging. This is due to, for example, the saliva washing therapeutic agents away into the gastrointestinal system, the movement of oral structures during mastication and the presence of keratinized oral mucosal surfaces.
  Comparing the effect of two different implant surface technologies on successful osseointegration in over-prepared osteotomy sites with reduced primary stability.
  Dr S Shahdad
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Research leading to the development of newer dental implant materials as well as understanding the cellular and acellular healing mechanisms between implant surface and surrounding hard and soft tissues have been in progress for over six decades.
