University of Leeds: School of Dentistry PhD Scholarships

Fully Funded Studentships at the School of Dentistry, University of Leeds

The School of Dentistry at the University of Leeds, through an alumnus donation by Dr Alfred Chan and matched by University and School investment, is funding a number of PhD studentships in memory of past Dean of the School, Professor Frederick Hopper. The School will be funding two studentships to start in September 2019, with at least a further two to follow.

Innovative research

Using interdisciplinary expertise we strive to understand fundamental mechanisms of oral and other diseases, to improve treatment, restore function and address the needs for prevention.

The relationship between oral and systemic health is a more recent priority (“putting the mouth back in to the body”), inspired by emerging and future disease patterns and the increased complexity of comorbidities. Translating research into clinical practice is fundamental to our research strategy to transform the quality of life of patients. Our goal is to translate innovative research to transform patient and population quality of life.

We benefit from the exciting opportunities in medical technologies and digital health through regional access to 160 medtech and health informatics companies; one of the largest sectors in the UK.

Staff and postgraduate students work across the disciplines and clinical specialities to address clinical priorities. Our PhD students come from a whole range of disciplines, from clinical dentistry and medicine, psychology, engineering, biomedicine and the physical sciences.
