Dr. Alastair Sloan research interests within the field of mineralised connective tissues, focussing on the reparative potential of these tissues originated from my doctoral studies at the University of Birmingham. During his PhD he established an in vitro organ culture model for human and rodent dental tissues. This provided a novel and innovative model for studying the biological behaviour of these tissues over extended periods of time.
