Prof Julian Yates
Julian Yates is a Professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at The University of Manchester and Honorary Consultant at Central Manchester NHS Foundation Trust, UK.
Professor Yates graduated with an Honours degree in Anatomy and Human Biology and then Dentistry at the University of Glasgow. He was then appointed as a research associate within the Dept of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Sheffield, funded by a Wellcome Trust Fellowship. This work investigated methods of enhancing nerve regeneration and preventing dysaesthesia following trigeminal nerve injury, and ultimately led to his PhD in 2002. After this period as a research assistant he undertook several hospital posts in the Yorkshire area as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. During this time he also gained his MFDS fellowship exam at the Royal Collage of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. He was then appointed by the University of Sheffield as a Clinical Lecturer/Hon SpR in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and went on to complete his ACCOMS training pathway.
In 2006 he was successful in obtaining a HEFCE Clinical Senior Lecturer award – the first one awarded to an individual in a dental specialty, and this enabled him to be promoted to Senior Lecture/Honorary Consultant in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Sheffield. In 2011 he went on to become a Professor in Oral and maxillofacial Surgery and Implantology at the University of Manchester
