UQ Dental School research

The UQ School of Dentistry has a long history of quality dental and oral research. The dental school continues to contribute to the advancement of scientific knowledge both locally and internationally, and performs exceptionally well in benchmarking exercises. The school’s research covers a broad spectrum of dental practice, and includes research by academic and research staff, postgraduate students, honours and undergraduate students.

The UQ Dental School has adopted two key strategic research themes which drive the development and growth of the of their research programs:
  1. Diagnosis and prevention of oral disease
  2. Dental biomaterials and advanced technologies
Research programs are defined as large collaborative research projects, which typically incorporate teams of senior and junior academics, postdoctoral research fellows, and Research Higher Degree (RHD) students. Each researcher investigates an aspect of a larger problem with their insights contributing to the resolution. It is the role of the program leader to formulate the program, manage the team’s research, and ultimately draw together the threads of the answer.

The dental school currently supports four research programs:
  1. Paediatric Caries
  2. Oral Cancer
  3. Efficient Effective Endodontics
  4. Applied Dental Biomaterials
Research facilities are available at the Biomaterials Laboratory (Turbot Street); UQ Centre for Clinical Research (Herston); and Centre for Paediatric Dentistry Research and Training (Kingston). Research support staff are available for technical and scientific advice and guidance in some areas.
