Oral Biology PhD Program Faculty
In alignment with the institutional goals, scientific research is the most prominent activity of the faculty in the Division of Biosciences. Within the past few years, the volume and scope of research in the section has increased greatly. All faculty have substantial external funding, and a major NIH-funded training grant for dental, graduate, and post-doctoral students and junior faculty. The myriad of ongoing multidisciplinary research programs focus on: Molecular and Cellular Biology, inflammation and Immunity, Developmental Biology, Chemical Senses, Musculoskeletal Biology, Microbiology, and Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering. The broad range of projects provided ample opportunities for scientific collaborations among faculty as well as offer opportunities for scientific collaborations among faculty as well as offer opportunities for graduate and post-doctoral students to obtain versatile training in modern approaches to biology.
