Oral biology is a growing area of commercial research within the pharmacological industry, making graduates of this programme attractive to employers. Dental disease is the most common disease in the UK and many developed countries. This disease can be caused by small daily problems, but often leads to long-term suffering and loss of quality of life. This programme is the only MSc in Oral Biology in the UK. It is designed for dental and basic or applied science graduates who may in future be responsible for the teaching of related subjects, or who need a greater understanding of the subject in order to develop their future academic or research careers.

- Focus on the latest scientific development related to the mouth and oral biology and health, it offers basic science in a clinical context
- Give you hands-on clinical explanations of the major scientific developments relating to both preventative medicine techniques to avoid disease, and commercial research into products
- Explore the latest developments in therapeutic dentistry; for example, the work being done into the oral delivery of drugs.
