The focus of the group will cover tree centric areas in the field of oral ecology, periodontal and oral health.

Oral ecology

The aim of our research activity is to understand the host-microbe interaction in health and disease status of oral and dental tissues. In the last years our research has focused on the presence and transferability of antibiotic resistance genes among oral bacterial.

The group shall promote research that is relevant to the region's oral health problems i.e. Northern Norway and the Barents region. The research group was established in 2017 and has members from UiT - the Artic University of Norway, national and international collaborators.
