Ph.D. Program in Oral Biology

The Ph.D. program provides training for those who wish to pursue basic and/or clinical research in dental medicine or the biomedical sciences.  Candidates my include those with bachelor's, master's, or DDS (or equivalent) degrees.  Interdisciplinary in nature, the PhD program draws upon faculty expertise in the following areas:

  • biochemistry
  • biophysics
  • clinical studies
  • developmental biology
  • epidemiology
  • immunology
  • microbiology
  • cell and molecular biology
  • physiology
  • pharmacology

Students choose an area of concentration from these disciplines but may also combine work in several fields in order to support their research interests; a research area does not necessarily consist of a single "traditional" scientific discipline. This program requires instead that students be committed to research and an academic career.

Ph.D. Program Directors: Drs. Chris Li and Stefan Ruhl
