The long term goal of our bioengineering research is to understand the mechanism of craniofacial tissue damage and healing, and develop therapeutics to regenerate the hard and soft tissue in dental and craniofacial area. In association with the School of Engineering, an integrated team of multidisciplinary scientists and clinicians taking advantage of advances in stem cell biology, chemistry, material science, nanotechnology and engineering, is focused on developing new methods to diagnose and treat oral and craniofacial diseases, including infections, inflammation, cancers and congenital abnormalities, and promote tissue healing.
