  Modulation of epigenetic phase variations in periodontal bacteria as a novel strategy for control of periodontal disease
  Dr K Hijazi, Dr G Cherukara
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Rationale and overall aim of the project. Periodontal disease (PD) is a major health issue in Scotland and worldwide with ever-increasing prevalence due to the increasing age of the population.
  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.
  Aetiology of burning mouth in Sjögren’s syndrome patients
  Dr A Tappuni
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Burning mouth (BM) is a chronic condition that can interfere with quality of life, seen commonly in otherwise health patients but also in patients with systemic conditions that causes dry mouth such as in Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) patients.
  Can optical coherence tomography replace X-Rays in paediatric dentistry?
  Dr P H Tomlins
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This PhD offers an exciting opportunity to work in a cross-disciplinary environment to develop new clinical imaging technology.
  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.
  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.
  Developing and evaluating a primary care navigation intervention for children and young people who have dental pain
  Dr V Muirhead
Applications accepted all year round
Background. A significant proportion of children still suffer from dental problems that cause acute pain despite massive improvements in children’s oral health in the UK [1].
  Developing and testing models of human tooth shape using dental radiographs
  Prof H Liversidge, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Human teeth vary in shape. The dimensions and shape of teeth from dental radiographs has not been studied in detail. Knowledge of the variation in crown and root dimensions of the mature tooth helps to define abnormal teeth as well as abnormal tooth eruption.
  Enhancement and Visualisation of Optical Biomedical Images in Clinical Dentistry
  Dr P H Tomlins
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
