  A novel approach to developing rechargeable fluoride containing polymeric dental materials
  Prof M Patel, Dr N Karpukhina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

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.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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].
  Enhance Your Academic Career at the Blizard Institute

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Blizard Institute (https://www.qmul.ac.uk/blizard/) is the largest institute of Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, part of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
  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.
  Exploring the role of histone deacetylase inhibitors as regulators of innate immune cells activation in periodontitis
  Dr F Flores-Borja
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Second Supervisor. Rommel Chacon-Salinas (National Polytechnic Institute, Mexico). Background.
  Integrated analysis of the Intra-tumour Heterogeneity of Oral squamous cell carcinoma
  Dr I Sequeira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a heterogeneous disease with unique genomic and phenotypic features that differ between individual patients and among different regions within the same tumour.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Iontophoresis to deliver corticosteroids across buccal mucosal using hydrogel as delivery systems
  Prof M Patel, Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  Molecular analysis of TERT gene promoter mutations in tongue cancer
  Dr A Kang, Prof E K Parkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Activation of telomerase is a hallmark of cancer and is aided in some tumours by activating mutations in the promoter of the telomerase reverse transcriptase gene, TERT.
