Basic sciences

In collaboration with The University of Manchester, we are internationally renowned for clinical and basic science interface. It has become increasingly focused on molecular and structural biology and encompasses four interactive, internationally recognised programmes in the analysis and management of craniofacial disorders, oral cancer, periodontal disease/mineralised tissues and biomaterials.

  • Craniofacial Genetics (Leader Prof. Mike Dixon)
  • Dental Biomaterials and Biomechanics (Leader Prof. David Watts)
  • Stem Cell Research (Leader Dr. Chris Ward)
