About the Oral Biology and Maxillofacial Pathology Program
The Oral Biology and Maxillofacial Pathology program focuses on biological processes that contribute to normal development and disease processes of the oro-facial complex. Based in the Dental College of Georgia, this interdisciplinary program spans the spectrum of biomedical sciences specialties to include Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Pharmacology and Pathology. The oral biology investigators have a wide range of research interests including oral cancer, bone metabolism, tissue regeneration, properties and biocompatibility of biomedical materials, oxidative stress and inflammation, diabetes and hypertension.
