Research Day 2017 Success

The School of Dentistry Research Day, held on the 12 July 2017 was once again a great success.

Over one hundred participants attended which included staff and postgraduate students from the School and the University’s Deputy Vice Chancellor for Research and Innovation, Professor Lisa Roberts. The day comprised of presentations from our postgraduate students in the form of poster and oral presentations and provided a friendly but lively forum for our students to present and defend their work.

Congratulations go to both Zijian Cheng and Sam Hollings who won joint first prize for the best verbal presentation for their research entitled: ‘Preliminary analyses of the metagenome in rheumatoid arthritis-associated periodontitis’ and ‘The mesenchymal stem cell response to strontium bioactive glass-ceramics for bone tissue engineering’ and to Aaron Zammit-Wheeler who won the prize for best poster presentation for his research entitled ‘Development of a label-free cell separator for autologous stem cell enrichment for skeletal tissue repair’.

After the success of this year's event, we are already looking forward to our next research day in 2018!
