The prerequisite to deliver dental implants in a correct three-dimensional position is to have sufficient volume of bone.

Moderate to severe bone defects are quite common and therefore constitute a significant challenge to the clinician.

Skilled use of regenerative materials can overcome the patients’ morbidity issues associate to the use of large autogenous grafts. This masterclass

program provides the knowledge and the core skills to allow dentists to manage sever alveolar bone defects with or without dental implants with

the use of Guide Bone Regeneration. In addition, the program provides in-depth knowledge of regenerative techniques to save periodontally severe

compromised teeth. This will enable dentists to treat more patients and provide them with cutting edge technology to treat the most challenging cases.

This programme is led by world renowned experts Dr. Isabella Rocchietta and Dr. David Nisand.

Learning Outcomes

• Understand the principles of guided bone regeneration and guided

tissue regeneration.

• Undertake expert patient diagnosis for vertical and horizontal

ridge augmentation.

• Make informed choices in graft selection and treatment planning

• Apply the latest techniques to reconstruct peri-implant soft and hard

tissues around dental implants or around teeth.

• Devise effective post-operative protocols.

BENEFITS

This Masterclass programme provides the knowledge and core skills required to manage severe vertical bone defects and treat them using

Guided Bone Regeneration. The use of such grafts can significantly reduce patient morbidity, restoring adequate bone volume to allow the

placing of implants without compromise on positioning. In addition, the Masterclass provides the knowledge to reconstruct lost periodontal

tissues around previously diseased teeth. This enables to save compromised teeth and avoid extraction.

METHODS OF STUDY

The Masterclass is delivered in small group workshops ensuring a very high

level of individual support and guidance.

12 MONTH MENTORSHIP

All students will benefit from access to a wealth of on-line resources, being

part of an alumni group to enable ongoing professional development and the

possibility to perform a live surgery in practice by operating on a patient who

requires severe bone regeneration in a time frame of 12 months after the masterclass.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. The participants will learn how to fully assess the patient for a correct diagnosis and case selection following specific guidelines.

2. The participants will know when and how they can save a tooth by means of periodontal regeneration.

3. The participants will experience with their own hands the challenge of a vertical bone augmentation surgery, with particular

emphasis on the precise steps of the surgical procedures

4. The participant will be able to learn all the tips and tricks that make GBR successful and learn how to avoid surgical pitfalls.

5. The participant will become confident in treating patients with bone defects by applying the GBR technique.

Biomaterials save lives, relieves suffering and improve the quality of life for a large number of patients every year�. (Technology Foresight, UK)

People are living longer and expect to be more mobile and active after injury or as they get older, therefore the demands for biomaterials and devices are increasing. Biomaterials combine engineering expertise with medical needs for the enhancement of healthcare. Biomaterials are either modified natural or synthetic materials which find application in a spectrum of medical implants for the repair, augmentation and replacement of body tissues. Queen Mary University of London has been a pioneer and led the field in teaching and research of biomaterials for over 28 years. In the early 1980s we were the first UK department to teach biomaterials modules and in 1991 the first to offer an undergraduate degree in the subject. This MSc programme will provide students with the knowledge in the field of biomaterials necessary to participate in biomaterials research or product development.

The MSc in Biomaterials has been designed for those with conventional materials expertise, or with expertise in engineering or medically related disciplines, who wish to facilitate their development into the biomaterials field. It provides an advanced level of understanding and appreciation of the principles and applications of biomaterials and their functional properties. You will learn about the function and application of biomaterials, their characteristics and their surface, physical and mechanical properties. You will study materials- and medicine-based modules, as well as those written specifically for the biomaterials programme. There are significant research elements in this programme including a research project based on the research interests of academic staff working in the field of biomaterials.

This Research Masters in Future Interaction Technologies and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) teaches graduate students to go beyond simply building new software and hardware, to evaluating how they would be used, and how they can be improved.

The MRes is taught by the Future Interaction Technology (FIT) Lab, within the Computer Science. The FIT Lab’s mission is to explore and apply Advanced Computer Science to make interaction technologies dependable, enjoyable and effective. Interaction technologies include mobile devices, the Web, Web 2.0, implants, home TVs, microwave cookers, ticket machines, navigational aids, etc. Furthermore, we aim to work on grand challenges, like improving safety in healthcare, or developing technology to reach the millions and help us live more effective and sustainable lives.

Our Research Masters programme in Future Interaction Technologies mainly concludes of a large individual research project worth 120 credits. Inclusive of this 120 credits is training and experience provided by our Lab & Field Research Methods module. You will spend around 8 months preparing for and working on this extensive project, which provides key experience in performing research-oriented projects. As the MRes has a research focus, you will spend more independent research time building a strong knowledge of research literature and striving to make a novel contribution to the HCI community.

Taught Component

In addition to the research project, you can choose from a range of modules that provide skills and development training in different areas during your studies on the Computing and Future Interaction Technologies MRes.

Industrial application

Our research is concerned with the processing, characterisation and applications of structural and functional ceramic materials. Structural ceramics are used in engineering applications due to a combination of high strength, chemical / thermal resistance and extreme hardness. In contrast, functional ceramics exhibit unique electrical, magnetic and optical properties, which lead to applications in a diverse range of electronic components - filters in mobile telecommunications, exhaust gas sensors and pyroelectric thermal imaging cameras.

We are engaged in research to understand the structure-property relationships in a wide range of ceramic materials and to develop materials / components with enhanced properties. Materials are developed by conventional powder processing methods and by novel processing procedures.

Research projects

Active projects in this area involve a wide range of processing techniques for functional and structural materials - these techniques are employed in industries as diverse as power generation, mobile telecommunications, aerospace and medical implants. To understand the microstructure-property relationships for the ceramics, we make extensive use of specialist characterisation facilities available in the school and in partner institutions nationally and internationally.

Industrial links

Through our close relationship with industry, we ensure that the research we carry out is relevant and focused on the requirements of new technology. We currently collaborate on research with, amongst others, Rolls-Royce, British Nuclear Fuel, Xaar Printing Technology, Powerwave, Morgan Electroceramics, and BAE Systems. We are also supported by EPSRC, the European Commission, and British Energy.
