UCL Eastman Dental Institute is the largest postgraduate dental school in Europe and has a reputation as one of the world's leading academic centres for dentistry, with a focus on translational research, postgraduate education and training.

The Institute has a global reputation in its three key areas of research interest - Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, Clinical Research, and Microbial Diseases.

It seeks to improve and make a positive impact upon oral and systemic health through innovative and high-quality research, much of which is underpinned by the availability of human tissue samples provided for ethically approved projects.

The UCL Eastman Biobank has been set up in order to make it easier to use redundant tissue for research and support Human Tissue Act standards for storage and disposal of relevant tissues and body fluids.

Our hope is that this resource will ultimately lead to a better understanding of oral disease and the development of more effective therapies.
