  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round
As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  Capturing sugar-promoting environments and understanding the link with oral health outcomes
  Dr K Wanyonyi, Prof L Twigg
Application Deadline: 17 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2019. The PhD will be based in the Dental Academy, and will be supervised by Dr Kristina Wanyonyi and Professor Liz Twigg.
  Novel formulations for oral care - developing a fundamental understanding of the formulation factors and strategies to enhance the retention of oral care ingredients in the mouth.
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Oral care has been widely recognised as a vital contributor to overall health. Modern oral care products including toothpastes, chewing gums and mouthwashes often provide a significant reduction in dental decay; they control plaque and prevent gum disease; they remove staining and restore the original teeth shade.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round
Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  Microencapsulated probiotics for oral delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Probiotics are live bacteria that reside in human intestinal tract and provide numerous beneficial effects. Oral delivery of probiotics is viewed as an efficient therapeutic strategy to improve gut health.
  Predicting the development of oral cancer
  Dr C Darido
Applications accepted all year round
Human head and neck cancer is a devastating disease with poor survival rates.
  Oral delivery of insulin for diabetes therapy: Development and evaluation of insulin loaded polymer/lipid based carrier systems
  Dr A Vangala
Applications accepted all year round
Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder that affects nearly 500 million people worldwide. Its hallmark feature, hyperglycaemia is caused due to insulin deficiency and/or resistance.
  Detecting and Imaging oral blood vessels for disease monitoring using Heart-Rate Modulated Optical Coherence Tomography
  Dr P H Tomlins
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This project offers an exciting opportunity to develop imaging technology for oral inflammation. Inflammation is an important condition underlying numerous human health conditions.
  Antibiotic Photo Disinfection for Oral health
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr M Milward
Applications accepted all year round
Oral diseases are the fourth most expensive diseases to treat globally (WHO, 2005), so developing new therapeutic management strategies to address these unmet needs in our population offers considerable public health benefit as well as potential for new product development.
  Investigation into the potential of using different delivery systems of cultured oral keratinocytes as a possible treatment for mucosal defects
  Prof PR Cooper, Dr R M Shelton
Applications accepted all year round
The overall aim of the project is to investigate the possibility of being able to remove a small biopsy of a patients oral mucosa from a suitable site, expand the numbers of keratinocytes in culture, before seeding these cells onto a suitable delivery system and reimplanting into the patient over their mucosal defect.
