Biography

Biography

Associate Professor in Dental Education and Research 
BDS Year 2 Programme Lead
ADK and ADTK module lead
Dental Intercalation Lead
EBL Lead
Co-Lead Oral Microbiome Research Group 

Zoe is currently employed at the University of Plymouth as an Associate Professor in Dental Education and Research with a variety of educational roles, including Year 2 Programme Lead for the Bachelor of Dental Surgery course. She is currently investigating the mechanisms linking oral health and systemic disease, having established and now co-leading the the Plymouth Oral Microbiome Research Group. Her particularly interests within this group are the links between the oral microbiome and blood pressure control (hypertension and pre-eclampsia), as well as the effects of anti-microbial mouth washes on the oral microbiome. She is involved in a national initiatives to develop health screening services at the dentist. She has also previously published extensively in the field of sepsis, identifying microvascular endothelial cell mechanisms and pharmacological agents that improved blood flow and reduced inflammation during sepsis.  

Zoe originally graduated with a BSc in Physiology and Pharmacology, after which she gained a PhD investigating the role of anaesthetics within the microcirculation, both from the University of Sheffield, ultimately becoming a Non-Clinical Lecturer and Principal Investigator there. Before this she also worked at the University of Alberta in the Department of Physiology as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow, funded by the National Institute for Health Research. Since graduating in dentistry from Plymouth University Zoe has practised in clinics in the city and still works part-time as Dental Associate within the NHS.
