The Advanced Materials and Technologies research stream works across the interface between oral microbiology, cariology, dental materials science and advanced technologies to explore key topics of importance with an emphasis on the transition of research into clinical practice.

Research leaders within this stream have active collaborations within UQ (Chemical Engineering, Physics, TRI, AIBN, IMB) and collaborates with multiple Australian and overseas universities on projects of common interest. The research stream acts as a node of the CRC in Oral Health, undertaking research with industry partners, as well as commercially funded research.
