Grant Will Fund Dental and Orofacial Tissue Regeneration Therapies

RANDYPHOTOS/GETTYIMAGES

The National Institutes of Health’s National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) will award $24 million over three years to two centers to develop resources and strategies to treat craniofacial and dental defects. The two national resource centers comprise the NIDCR’s Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Tissue Regeneration Consortium, which will guide new therapies through preclinical studies to human clinical trials. The goal is to develop strategies and devices to help restore dental, oral and craniofacial tissues lost to disease, injury or congenial disorders.

The following resource centers have been named award recipients:

  • Michigan-Pittsburgh-Wyss Resource Center: Supporting Regenerative Medicine in Dental, Oral and Craniofacial Technologies. Based and led by the University of Michigan’s (U-M) School of Dentistry, the health sciences resource center brings together researchers from several U-M departments, the University of Pittsburgh, Harvard University and private companies to develop strategies to restore dental, oral and craniofacial tissues.
  • The Center for Dental, Oral & Craniofacial Tissue & Organ Regeneration (C-DOCTOR). Founded last year in partnership between six California institutions, and led by the University of California, San Francisco, C-DOCTOR will serve as a national resource for the clinical translation of innovative technologies to regenerate dental and craniofacial tissues lost to congenital disorders, trauma and disease.
