Cellular responses to radiation curing of resin-composite materials


Project Description

Ultraviolet and visible light energy is routinely used for crosslinking a multitude of biomaterial applications ranging from hydrogels for tissue engineering and drug delivery, laser activated surgical adhesives to resin-based composite dental restoratives. The radiant exposure of light curing sources and photoinitiation chemistry of the biomaterial may cause damage to host tissue.

This project aims to investigate variations in wavelength and irradiance on relevant cell behaviour and vitality. This work has immense translational potential from materials engineering to clinical practice and will be important for informing industry in the development of new restorative materials.

At present, we would only consider applications from prospective students with:
- a good (bio)medical degree, with interests in any of the areas outlined above,
- good command of the English language as outlined in the postgraduate prospectus,
- a source of funding to cover tuition fees and bench fees.

To be considered for this studentship, please send the following documents to :
• A detailed CV, including your nationality and country of birth;
• Names and addresses of two referees;
• A covering letter highlighting your research experience/capabilities;
• Copies of your degree certificates with transcripts;
• Evidence of your proficiency in the English language, if applicable.

Funding Notes

We have a thriving international Researcher community and encourage applications from students of any nationality able to fund their own studies (i.e. through Government scholarship schemes, self-funding), or who wish to apply for their own funding (e.g. Commonwealth Scholarships, Islamic Development Bank International PhD Scholarships, China Scholarship Council, etc).
