Course content

This new and innovative course builds upon the integrated nature of the School of Dentistry’s clinical and basic science divisions, and aims to prepare future researchers, from scientific or clinical backgrounds for research careers based in addressing oral health needs. You’ll gain a thorough background in oral sciences, the investigative, cutting edge technologies that enable oral scientific discovery and the necessary training in research governance and rigour. All areas of translational research pathways will be addressed, including aspects of commercialisation which will be taught through the Leeds University Business School (LUBS). Disease focused modules provide opportunities for in-depth exploration with research experts in the fields of Cancer, Musculoskeletal and Oral and systemic disease links.

Our teaching staff includes world leading experts with track records in translating research discoveries into novel healthcare products and practices. Student integration within the wider Dental school will be facilitated by undertaking recently updated modules shared with students from other MSc programmes.

Aimed at dental and biosciences graduates, the course will facilitate a career path focussed on oral research and its translation into positive impacts on health.
