Centres and groups

Our staff are active members in the research community locally, nationally and globally. We are involved in numerous groups and centres and our research aligns with the college research themes and activity

Centres

Arthritis Research UK Biomechanics and Bioengineering Centre (ARUK BBC)

The Cardiff Institute of Tissue Engineering and Repair (CITER)

Development and Evaluation of Complex Interventions for Public Health Improvement (DECIPHer)

Groups

Advanced Therapies Group

Informing the design, development and testing of novel polymer therapeutics in the prevention and treatment of difficult to treat, often life-threatening infections

Dental Public Health Unit

Our research focuses on oral health improvement and ranges from clinical trials of preventive dental technologies to studies designed to further understanding of and actions to address oral health inequalities.

Epidemiology and Applied Clinical Research Group

Our research has had a wide impact, benefitting orthodontic treatment and developing novel approaches to manage recurrent orofacial herpetic lesions.

Matrix Biology and Tissue Repair

Our research aims to understand and manipulate the interface between extracellular matrix (ECM) and the diversity of cells in the craniofacial complex.

Microbial Diseases Research Group

Our research has significant focus on the involvement of microbial biofilms in a wide range of human infections.

Mineralised Tissue Group

Our research is focused into three broad areas associated with repair, regeneration and maintenance of mineralised tissues and the underlying pathophysiology of these tissues.

Orthodontics and Three-Dimensional Imaging Group

Research improves our knowledge and understanding of the development of the craniofacial complex and translates this knowledge into routine clinical practice and daily activities.

Stem Cells, Wound Repair and Regeneration

Our research aims to understand the mechanisms underlying the repair and regeneration of oral, dermal and neural tissues during health and disease

Violence Research Group

The Group comprises medical and social scientists, economists, psychologists, academic clinicians and practitioners from across the University.

Welsh Oral Health Information Unit

The Welsh Oral Health Information Unit (WOHIU) works with the Wales Dental Epidemiology Co-ordinator to plan and deliver the NHS Dental Survey Programme for Wales.
