The School of Dental Sciences and COHR

You will spend most of your time within the School of Dental Sciences and the COHR, working within research teams led by experts in their field in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

We combine world-class clinical and research facilities with an open environment where scholars, clinicians and researchers benefit from working side-by-side. Our focus is on multidisciplinary translational research, work that is relevant to real life.

COHR has a particular focus on understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms and translating these into clinical settings. Evaluation of clinical, community and economic strategies to improve public health and inform a wider health agenda is a central research theme. Within COHR there is a Collaborating Centre for the World Health Organization for Nutrition and Oral Health. Research projects are strongly aligned to the Centre's main research themes:

  • translational oral biosciences
  • oral healthcare and epidemiology
  • biomaterials and biological interfaces

COHR is involved in a number of industrial collaborations. We also work together with the Newcastle Clinical Trials Unit to provide planning, design and implementation of clinical trials in oral health.
