The Bioengineering and Health Technologies Group leads research into all aspects of the use of biomaterials and medical devices for the repair of human tissues to restore functionality and aesthetics. The Group brings together basic scientists, dental technicians, and clinicians to form a dedicated team with all the skills necessary to support a broad interdisciplinary programme. Our project portfolio encompasses research into advanced and nanostructured materials, digital dentistry and advanced manufacturing, and regenerative therapies including tissue engineering. This research programme is directed at providing the scientific and technical advances that underpin the deployment of new technologies and clinical interventions to make a substantial difference to human longevity and improved quality of life.
Our capabilities and impact are further strengthened by international collaboration and industrial partnership. The Bioengineering and Health Technologies Group has contributed significantly to the development of new materials and clinical interventions that make a difference to many thousands of people worldwide, and our current programme will undoubtedly continue to make a difference in the future.
