The Oral Biology and Maxillofacial Pathology program focuses on biological processes that contribute to normal development of the orofacial complex and diseases that arise in this area. Based in the Dental College of Georgia, this interdisciplinary program encompasses a range of biomedical science specialties including Anatomy, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Microbiology, Immunology, Pharmacology and Pathology.
Faculty members are active in several national and international organizations including the International Association for Dental Research, the American Association for Dental Research, the American Dental Education Association, the American Heart Association, the American Academy of Implant Dentistry Research Foundation, the American Academy of Oral Medicine, and the International Academy of Oral Oncology, as well as the National Institutes of Health, where they serve on committees and review groups. Several faculty members also serve on the editorial boards or as reviewers for major scientific journals. These associations demonstrate excellence, integrity, and leadership of our faculty. These attributes are also expected and demonstrated by our students, evident by a high success rate in securing presentations at national meetings and winning national awards related to their research.
Faculty engage students and inspire them to make new scientific discoveries, with the goal of improving clinical care, while emphasizing the need for life-long learning.
