Prof. Nick Silikas

– Nick Silikas is a Professor in Oral Biomaterials Sciences. He is the Director of Graduate Education for all taught and research degrees in Dentistry in Manchester. He is also the Postgraduate Research Director of Medical Sciences overseeing over 450 PhD students in six major disciplines (Dentistry, Cardiovascular Sciences, Medical Education, Cancer Sciences, Developmental Biology and Diabetes).

– He has worked within the field of dental biomaterials since 1996. His research has generated more than 120 papers, which have received over 6000 citations and an h index of 48 (google scholar) and i10 index of 89.

– He is Editor of “Dental Materials“ ranked No 3 in all dental Journals and the No 1 Journal for Dental Materials. He is also the Associate Editor (Dental Biomaterials Section) for “European Journal of Oral Sciences“.

Nanomechanical mapping of CAD/CAM polymer infiltrated ceramics and resin-composite bloks

Matching of the mechanical and tribological properties of the dental restorations to those of the opposing tooth is very important to achieve good clinical outcomes. Thus, a thorough investigation of the microstructure, nanomechanical properties, and nanotribological properties is necessary to select the most appropriate restorative materials
