About

With their world-class reputation, renowned experts and new research facilities, the Dentistry and Dental Sciences programme from Newcastle University is well placed to offer dentistry and dental research opportunities of the highest international standard.

Overview

As a postgraduate research student studying for a Dental Sciences MPhil or PhD, you will be based within the Faculty of Medical Sciences.

The Dentistry and Dental Sciences programme from Newcastle University is delivered in the School of Dental Sciences, the Centre for Oral Health Research (COHR) and the Faculty in addition to the relevant Research Institutes for:

  • Biosciences
  • Translational and Clinical Research
  • Population Health Sciences

If your research involves clinical components there may be a partnership with the NHS.

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
  • Dental education

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.
