Investing In Research

Propelling Breakthroughs in Oral Health and Interdisciplinary Discovery

Clinical and Translational Research Center.

This new Center will be equipped and staffed to conduct research that will speed evidence-based products to market and facilitate collaboration across the University to develop new materials, innovative diagnostics, and novel therapeutics of value to our patients.

Invest in Research Excellence.

Penn Dental Medicine has many areas where discovery is rapidly accelerating toward new therapies. These include Stem Cell, Nanotechnology, Materials Reseach, Biopharmaceuticals, and Immune System Therapies. Through this campaign, we will recruit new scholars and support collaborations with other scientists throughout the University of Pennsylvania.
