About

The area of biomaterials science and dental technology covers many biomaterials for operative dentistry, prosthodontics, endodontics, orthodontics, and oral surgery, plus research on orthopaedic bone cements. The Biomaterials Science and Dental Technology program is offered by The University of Manchester.

Overview

About our PhD and MPhil degrees

  • PhD/MPhil programmes at The University of Manchester are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one to two years (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).
  • Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.
  • Special interests include photo-polymerization phenomena, adhesion, visco-elastic behaviour, surface analysis, X-ray microtomography and a wide range of composite biomaterial behaviour.
  • The Biomaterials Science and Dental Technology laboratories are well equipped with modern instrumentation for research in this field. 
  • They are at the centre of our large campus, with access to many other special instruments and expertise in, for example, photon science, chemistry, cell biology and materials science.
  • We use multiple techniques, such as experimental and computational biomechanics and imaging or spectroscopic probes of their underlying micro/nano-scale structure and time-dependent properties. 
  • This allows an enhanced mechanistic understanding of reasons for their clinical success or failure.
  • Other areas of interest include implant surface characteristics, bioglass formation and properties and dentine occlusion.
Career opportunities
  • Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.

Programme Structure

Training and development

  • All of our postgraduate research students attend the Doctoral Academy Training Programme delivered by the Centre for Academic and Researcher Development (CARD).
  • The programme provides key transferable skills in areas such as commercial awareness, academic writing and public engagement. This training equips our postgraduates with the tools to progress beyond their research degree into influential positions within academia, industry and consultancy.
  • The emphasis is on enhancing skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals, whether they relate to effective communication, disseminating research findings and project management skills.
