Collaboration Creates Smiles

People may be surprised to find the amount of research happening at the CU School of Dental Medicine, but our researchers are developing therapies and tools to be used in dental offices around the country. These faculty members hold patents and continually change the way patients are treated.

Ranging from drug therapies for head and neck cancers to new treatment techniques, our researchers are leading the way for innovative oral health. The basic science on campus gives students access to the latest cutting-edge therapies and discoveries. All of this research is happening in one of the most collaborative spaces on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, where biochemists, dentists, biologists and more can work together to transform medicine.
