Oral Microbiome and Health Initiative
Achieving research excellence in the Faculty
Research Group
Overview of Group Research Activities
A well-balanced oral microbiome underpins good oral health and well-being. However, the biological activities of a disturbed or ‘imbalanced’ oral microbiome can promote oral and systemic disease and disorder. The aim of the Oral Microbiome and Health Initiative (OMHI) is to identify the fundamental mechanisms by which the oral microbiome promotes good oral health, and is resilient towards disease-related processes. Our goal is to improve oral health and well-being by developing innovative, personalized strategies targeting the oral microbiome. The current focus of the OMHI is to use bioinformatics and artificial intelligence in combination with clinical approaches to improve periodontal and peri-implant health.
