The School of Oral and Dental Sciences has a long-established interdisciplinary research culture with tight links between clinical dentistry and basic scientific research.
As a result, our research laboratories are located close to clinical facilities such as the Clinical Trials Unit, patient clinics and primary care units.
We receive funding from a range of organisations including the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), The Healing Foundation, The Wellcome Trust and various research councils, among others.
Research in the school is managed under three autonomous research programmes, providing an exciting array of options for postgraduate research and for collaboration with colleagues in the University's Faculties of Medical and Veterinary Sciences, Science, and Engineering.
- Applied Clinical and Materials Sciences
- Infection and Immunology
- Lifecourse Epidemiology and Population Oral Health
The international excellence of research output, impact and environment at the School of Oral and Dental Sciences has been confirmed by the results of the Research Excellence Framework 2014
