Dr. Marshall Padilla, a current NIDCR T90 postdoctoral fellow within CiPD has been selected to be part of the American Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research’s Mentoring an Inclusive Network for a Diverse Workforce of the Future program.
Penn Medicine will conduct a new clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a chewing gum designed by School of Dental Medicine researchers to trap SARS-CoV-2 in the saliva.
A study led by Shuying (Sheri) Yang of the School of Dental Medicine identified a new role for a protein that keeps osteoclasts—the cells that break down bone—in check, and may guide the development of new therapies to counter bone loss.
Adding to the depth of research at the dental medicine and engineering interface, Penn Dental Medicine welcomes recent recruit Dr. Kyle Vining, who joined Penn Dental Medicine and its Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry (CiPD) on July 1.
In a proof-of-concept study, researchers from Penn Dental Medicine and its Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry (CiPD), have shown that microrobots can access the difficult to reach surfaces of the root canal with controlled precision, treating and disrupting biofilms and even retrieving samples for diagnostics, enabling a more personalized treatment plan.
In a proof-of-concept study, researchers from the School of Dental Medicine and School of Engineering and Applied Science shows that a hands-free system could effectively automate the treatment and removal of tooth-decay-causing bacteria and dental plaque.
This inaugural symposium, held June 2, brought together dentists, scientists, and engineers to share their work and identify new opportunities to advance oral health innovation at the intersection of dental medicine and engineering.
With one of its key missions to develop a new generation of scientists at the interface of dental medicine and engineering, the Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry (CiPD) has selected its inaugural class of fellows for its new postdoctoral training program.
Dr. Michel Koo, co-director of the CiPD, will be the featured speaker April 5, 2022, noon-1 pm, in this virtual lecture. Learn more and register.
Behind Biotech Podcast talks with Dr. Michel Koo on innovation in oral health.
Chewing gum could be a new tool to block the spread of COVID-19. Dr. Henry Daniell from Penn Dental Medicine tells HealthCall's Lee Kelso how his lab has infused chewing gum with a plant-based enzyme that acts like flypaper to trap the virus, plus block the receptor so it can't enter your body.
In experiments using saliva samples from COVID-19 patients, the gum, which contains the ACE2 protein, neutralized the virus.

The Center's first IDEA Prize was awarded to Dr. Henry Daniell at Penn Dental Medicine, and his collaborator, Dr. Daeyon Lee, at Penn Engineering.
With a new training grant, awards, and new faculty and publications, the Center for Innovation & Precision Dentistry is leveraging technological advancements to improve oral health.
The inaugural Advancing Oral & Craniofacial Health Award was awarded to Penn Dental Medicine’s Dr. Eugene Ko for a project titled “Baby Seal: Promoting Intrinsic Sucking in Cleft Palate Infant Bottle Feeding.” Dr. Ko is collaborating with Dr. Shu Yang at Penn Engineering.
Two new research grant programs have been launched in partnership with the CiPD to help advance innovative breakthroughs in dental medicine, with Penn Health-Tech and the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation.
The official launch of the CiPD brought together partners across Penn and invited guests to share the goals and vision of this unique collaboration.
A productive collaboration between the School of Dental Medicine and School of Engineering and Applied Science led to the microbe-killing robots for biofilm elimination.
