Biomaterials Science and Dental Technology

Research aims to develop an enhanced mechanistic understanding of reasons for the clinical success or failure of oral and craniofacial biomaterials; a major focus is upon varied types of composite materials with photo-polymerised resin or RM-GIC matrices, including model systems of well-defined chemistry. The course studies their underlying micro/nano-scale structure and time-dependent properties.
