Course Summary

With our world-class reputation, renowned experts and new research facilities, we are well placed to offer dentistry and dental research opportunities of the highest international standard. As a postgraduate research student studying for a Dental Sciences MPhil, you will be based within the Faculty of Medical Sciences. As a research student you will receive a tailored package of academic and support elements to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our Faculty of Medical Sciences Graduate School.

The programme is delivered in the School of Dental Sciences, the Centre for Oral Health Research (COHR) and the Faculty in addition to the relevant Biomedical Research Institutes for: Ageing, Cell and Molecular Biosciences, Cellular Medicine, Health and Society, Genetic Medicine, Neurosciences and Cancer. If your research involves clinical components there may be a partnership with the NHS. 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.
