Julia Davies

Julia Davies is Professor at the Department of Oral Biology. She is engaged in laboratory-based and clinical research on the role played by microbial biofilms (dental plaque) in development of the oral diseases, caries and periodontitis (gum disease). Her primary interests are: the role of oral streptococcal adhesins in early biofilm formation, adaptation in oral bacteria in response to interactions with salivary proteins and the development of proteolytic activity in biofilms in periodontitis and infections associated with dental implants (peri-implantitis). She is involved in teaching of dental students in areas such as cell biologi, tooth development, mucosal biology and salivary biochemistry.
