A minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor’s degree in an appropriate subject, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard, or a recognised MRes or Master’s degree. Applicants are also expected to satisfy UCLH NHS Foundation Trust requirements for engagement in clinical practice. Entry is extremely competitive and places will only be offered to exceptional candidates. In addition to choosing a research project, applicants must decide on the clinical discipline within which they wish to gain experience.All prospective applicants are encouraged to send an informal research enquiry. This should be sent directly to the Research Student Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org). Making a research enquiry helps define your interests, contributes to making your application successful, and also serves to ensure the identification of the best possible supervisor for your needs. You can find information about the research departments within the Eastman's website.
Months of entry
The institute has a global reputation for high quality research in three key areas: Biomaterials and tissue engineering: biomaterials for tissue regeneration; hard and soft tissue biology and repair Clinical research: wound healing; inflammation Microbial diseases: biofilms and ecology; genetics and virulence; cellular microbiology; antimicrobial strategies and resistance.
Many of these areas have a direct link with common diseases of the head and neck (e.g. caries, periodontitis, congenital disorders of craniofacial and dental structure, oral malignancy). As such, both clinical and non-clinical research students have significant opportunities to pursue interdisciplinary and translational research to solve both clinical and more fundamental biomedical science problems relevant to oral health.
