Research at the College of Dentistry

Research takes place throughout the College of Dentistry. The Dows Institute for Dental Research, established in 1976 with a gift by the Dows family, offers collaborative, joint-use research laboratories and core research space.

The College of Dentistry's research goals include advancing research and scholarship in oral, craniofacial, and general health. Faculty researchers pursue research through funding from federal or state sources, industrial/corporate partnerships, and private foundations. Using core research facilities, dental researchers pursue basic, clinical, and translational research collaborations.
