Research at the Institute of Dentistry is conducted within several research groups, the work of which builds on areas of research excellence at the Institute of Dentistry and complementary expertise at the University of Aberdeen and NHS Grampian. Researchers and their collaborators are already making impact on the local, national and international stage. The work of the research groups falls within the remit of three overarching themes:
- Clinical & Population Health Theme
- Dental Education Theme
- Experimental & Translational Sciences Theme
The breadth of the three overarching themes allows for flexibility and development of individual research groups.
