This research-based program is directed toward a general understanding of the biology of the oral cavity and developing craniofacial region and the interactions between oral and systemic health. Basic (molecular and cellular), clinical and translational dental and medical research is pursued. Therefore, the student body in Oral Biology is diverse and includes post-graduate dentists, dental students and science graduates.
