Program Overview

Our close-knit, interdisciplinary faculty allows research training that emphasizes an integrative approach and includes expertise in molecular, cellular, bioengineering, and in vivo research methodologies. The Master of Science (MS) in Oral Biology program was founded with the idea that its faculty would have dual degrees in clinical dentistry and basic science. Thus, many faculty hold dental and PhD degrees in basic biomedical science disciplines. Topics covered in the Oral Biology MS program include: wound healing and tissue regeneration; hard tissue biology; fluoride metabolism; muscle anatomy and physiology; taste; facial pain (including causes and management); management of complex dental patients; dental pharmacology; oral immunology; oral microbiology; molecular pathology; regulation of cell growth; and craniofacial development.
