Our focus is to provide a creative, inclusive and diverse environment to train dentists, engineers, and scientists to apply engineering and computational approaches to address the unmet needs in oral & craniofacial health.
The goals of the training program are:
- Identify and assess novel ways to study disease mechanisms and develop translatable diagnostics/therapeutics
- Promote entrepreneurship to accelerate commercialization of new inventions
- Create a new cohort of cross-trained workforce to advance oral-craniofacial research and healthcare
We employ advanced yet affordable technologies and new methodologies to better understand oral/craniofacial diseases and promote oral health in susceptible population.
Our trainees will be at the forefront of precision dental medicine to develop clinically translatable solutions and tackle oral health disparities both locally and globally.
