Professor Paul Cooper
Professor of Oral Biology
School of Dentistry
After a BSc degree in Genetics at Leeds University, Paul completed his PhD in Cancer Studies at the University of Birmingham, conducting research into cloning of the gene for Ataxia Telangiectasia. He subsequently undertook a postdoctoral position at Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, New York for two years working on the molecular genetics of eye, ear and cancer predisposing disorders. He then returned to the UK to work in the pharmaceutical industry as a postdoc at the Novartis Horsham Research Centre, West Sussex for a further 2 years, undertaking molecular studies into inflammatory lung diseases. Paul returned to Birmingham in 2000 and was appointed Lecturer in Molecular Biology and in 2012 he was appointed Professor of Oral Biology at the School of Dentistry. His current main research interests are in tissue repair and inflammatory/immune aspects of oral and dental diseases. He has particular interest in the interaction between stem cells, inflammation and tissue regeneration with focus in the pulp biology and oral mucosal areas. His research is supported by research council, charity and industrial funding.
