Dr. Salman Aziz

Dr. Salman Aziz HOD & Associate Professor / BDS, MSc, PhD (Dental Materials)

I was appointed as Assistant Professor & Head of Dental Materials Department at the Institute of Dentistry, CMH Lahore Medical College in December 2015 and was promoted to the post of Associate Professor in October 2018. I completed my Master’s degree from University of London in 2008 and undertook my PhD at University of Sheffield and successfully completed in March 2015.

I feel privileged to be a fellow of the Marie Curie Research Association, under which I have worked as an Oral Health Care Scientist for Philips, in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Currently, I am also a member of the PAK-UK Research collaboration for sustainable and cost effective biomaterials to be used in health care systems of developing countries.

I am currently a member of PAK-UK Research collaboration where I am actively involved in development of sustainable and cost effective biomaterials to be used in healthcare systems of the under-developed countries.

Our projects include:

  • Artificial injectable bone grafts for bone repair and regeneration.
  • Periodontal membranes for various dental procedures.
  • Artificial skin grafts for patients suffering from burns.
