More about this group

The Oral Microbiology group is led by Dr Angela Nobbs.


The Oral Microbiology research group conducts studies into the survival strategies of microorganisms, their colonisation and virulence factors, and the interactions that occur between microbes or between microbe and host, especially in the development of microbial communities (biofilms). These studies impinge on many aspects of both oral and systemic health and disease. Areas of particular focus include colonisation and pathogenesis mechanisms of Streptococcus bacteria and of fungus Candida albicans.
