  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Overcoming the penetration depth limitations of optical coherence tomography in clinical dentistry using full electromagnetic wave computer models
  Dr P H Tomlins, Dr R Donnan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In healthcare, imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools available. Deep tissue imaging is usually achieved using either ionising X-Ray radiation, MRI which is expensive or ultrasound, which has low resolution.
  World-class research programme at the University of Otago

Funding Type

PhD Type

 . The University of Otago is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world, and has the highest-possible rating of 5 Stars Plus in the QS global university performance ratings.
  Can optical coherence tomography replace X-Rays in paediatric dentistry?
  Dr P H Tomlins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. This PhD offers an exciting opportunity to work in a cross-disciplinary environment to develop new clinical imaging technology.
  Enhancement and Visualisation of Optical Biomedical Images in Clinical Dentistry
  Dr P H Tomlins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. This is an exciting project at the cutting edge of biomedical imaging in clinical dentistry. New technology offers a future for oral healthcare without the use of harmful X-Ray imaging.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Exploring the role of OGG1 in fibroblast senescence
  Dr D Lambert, Prof T Helleday
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fibroblasts are the major cell type of connective tissue. They play a critical role in maintaining the extracellular matrix, the ‘glue’ in which most cells reside, and maintaining normal function of other types of cells such as epithelial and immune cells.
  Understanding how immune cells support metastasis by “de-constructing” the tumour microenvironment
  Dr L Ombrato, Prof F Balkwill
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK, affecting 1 in 8 women during the course of their lifetime. Despite advances in the treatment of the primary tumour, metastatic disease remains largely uncurable, highlighting urgent clinical unmet needs.
  Understanding factors that influence behaviour change talk in routine dental care to prevent oral health problems in young children
  Dr S Peters, Dr J Goldthorpe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dental decay is a preventable disease that impacts significantly on children’s development and wellbeing. Tooth extraction due to decayed teeth is the number one reason for hospital admission in young children and in Greater Manchester, a 1/3 of children have dental decay by the time they start school.
  Inclusive Design for Future Oral Health Scenarios; A lifespan design approach investigating mainstream and extreme oral health pathways
  Dr F Nickpour, Dr N Longridge
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type
