Dentistry PhD Research Projects for Self-funded Students

We have 27 Dentistry PhD Research Projects for Self-funded Students

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

Development and characterisation of multifunctional surfaces for durable infection prevention treatments on dental prosthetic device

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full-time or 6 year part-time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Marta Roldo, Professor Gordon Blunn and Dr Mahdi Mutahar. Read more

Investigating the links between β-amyloid, osteoporosis and frailty in Alzheimer’s disease

Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals1, significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia. Read more

Feeding microbes to protect the brain: does the gut microbiota mediate the risk-reducing effects of a healthy diet on Alzheimer’s disease?

Background. Ways of reducing the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias are critically needed, given the almost total lack of truly effective therapeutic options, even despite newer anti-amyloid drugs1. Read more

Transcriptome homeostasis in cellular ageing and cancer

Project Summary. We have previously established the oncogenic mechanisms of the transcription factor FOXM1 in perturbation of genome stability (1, 2), epigenome (3, 4) and adult progenitor epithelial stem cell proliferation (5). Read more
