Much of our research is focused upon preventing, diagnosing and treating common oral disorders such as childhood dental decay, gum disease and oral cancer. However, our postgraduates and staff are also engaged in research that is expected to have a wider impact on collective public health, such as antibiotic resistance, bone repair and soft-tissue reconstruction. We also conduct industry-sponsored and other clinical trials in our Eastman Clinical Investigation Centre (ECIC) and engage with elite athletes via our Centre for Oral Health and Performance.
As part of UCL, students and staff have the opportunity to work with some of the greatest intellects in the world, access state-of-the-art facilities and collaborate with colleagues across multiple fields and disciplines.
