The Advanced Materials and Technologies research stream works across the interface between fundamental sciences and clinical dental practice, spanning materials chemistry and nanomaterials, microbiology and laser science through to laboratory studies of dental hard and soft tissue responses to materials and material performance, to clinical trials of novel technologies.

The group has a focus on how research findings are transitioned into clinical dental practice, and is particularly interested in endodontics, cariology and paediatric dentistry, imaging and forensic dentistry. Group members within this stream have active collaborations within UQ (e.g. IMB, SCMB, Medicine, UQCCR, Chemical Engineering, Physics) and collaborate with external partners (including Metro North and Metro South) and industry on projects of common interest.
