Salivary Biology & Immunology Program

The Salivary Biology and Immunology Program encourages basic and translational research that:
  • furthers our understanding of the biology of saliva and salivary gland, immunology of oral diseases, and oral manifestations of systemic and infectious diseases
  • develops new tools and technologies to address challenges in these areas
  • explores pathways toward commercialization and therapeutics
