  Developing and testing models of human tooth shape using dental radiographs
  Prof H Liversidge, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  How human teeth form and how that process fails in the inherited condition amelogenesis imperfecta
  Prof C Inglehearn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amelogenesis is the process of enamel formation and is essential for the development of functional teeth. Amelogenesis imperfecta (AI) is a failure of that process.
  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.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. This project offers an exciting opportunity to develop imaging technology for oral inflammation. Inflammation is an important condition underlying numerous human health conditions.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  The Role of Fusion Genes Tumourigenesis
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Salivary gland tumours are uncommon but have a varied and complex pattern of histopathological features.
