Microbiology Program

The Microbiology Program supports basic research examining the role of the oral microbiota (comprising bacteria, archaea, fungi and viruses) in dental health and disease as well as preclinical studies aimed at developing new prevention and treatment options for dental infections. Topics include examining the oral microbiota through studies in microbial ecology, physiology and genetics; polyomic technologies (genomics, metagenomics and systems biology); mechanisms of microbial virulence and pathogenesis; and classical prevention and treatment strategies for combating infectious disease.
