Research project

A Model Oral System for Oral Healthcare Risk Assessment

Project overview

National Biofilms Innovation Centre (NBIC), UK. Proof of Concept (POC) Round 1 (Research Grant). £99,470 (£49,470 from NBIC, £37,632 from Unilever).
Hundreds of microorganisms live in the mouth, many are harmless while others cause caries and gum disease. This project will utilise an in vitro model system to investigate how oral hygiene products may affect this complex oral microbiome to better predict product efficacy.
