More about this group

The Oral Nanoscience group is led by Dr Michele Barbour.


The Oral Nanoscience group is interested in multi-functional biomaterials. In particular, we are interested in antimicrobial materials which resist microbial colonisation and biofilm formation. Examples of this include dental filling materials and sealants and polymers for catheters and dental ligatures, as well as topical agents for periodontal disease and foot disease in farm animals. We are also active in the field of nanoreinforced biomaterials, particularly for dental applications.
