In the two years since the cross-disciplinary research partnership was founded, CiPD has introduced microrobots that clean teeth, a new understanding of microbial physics in tooth decay, and promising futures for plant biotechnology and lipid nanoparticles in dental plaque and oral cancer treatment.
Current research at the interface of dental medicine and engineering was in the spotlight as CiPD presented its 2nd Annual Symposium: Dentists, Scientists & Engineers Transforming Oral Health. The event was held at Penn’s Singh Center for Nanotechnology.
A gift to the Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry accelerates research into new tools to diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and otherwise address unmet oral health needs. There are various ways to make a contribution, including online.
