Center for Innovation and Translation Will Expand Clinical Research Partnerships


close up of male researcherThe University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry has launched the Center for Innovation and Translation to drive new clinical research partnerships supporting oral and overall health in the United States and beyond. The center will bring together internal and external collaborators to develop innovative practices and translate clinical research to improve oral healthcare.

The school’s location in the San Francisco Bay area places it in the heart of many emerging technologies, including big data, biotechnology and artificial intelligence. The center will launch pilot initiatives and clinical research to drive evidence for larger and more significant translational and clinical studies. The center will also host a biobank to facilitate a new era of patient sampling and clinical investigation for global academic and commercial access. Work will include big data analysis to find links between oral and general health, and use of salivary diagnostics to improve clinicians’ ability to diagnose and treat oral and systemic conditions.
