Systemic conditions and oral health: fully funded 4-year PhD and stipend

Systemic conditions and oral health share common risk factors such as a high sugar diet. People living with systemic conditions often report disordered eating behaviours, which has implications for diet and health outcomes. Read more

Development of a novel calcium-based hydraulic sealer

Root canal therapy is necessary when the dental pulp is damaged irreversibly and has to be removed. The loss of the dental pulp creates a dead space inside the tooth which is colonized by bacteria. Read more

Is there a Role for Activated Akt in Palatogenesis?

Main Aim. The project will use a medial edge epithelial (MEE) cell line as an in vitro model. These cells will be used to investigate the effects of exogenous TGFβ-3 and activation of Akt on cell migration, epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) and apoptosis. Read more
