Biomaterials research is one of the fastest growing areas at the College of Dentistry. The arrival of new well-trained faculty, as well as the acquisition of new equipment, has resulted in a surge of activity in this exciting field. At present, research efforts fall into four general categories:
- mechanical and physical testing of biomaterials
- biological response evaluation
- outcomes assessment (clinical trials)
A fast turn-around time for obtaining test results, as well as low overhead costs, makes the UNMC College of Dentistry a desirable place to conduct research. See more about this research at Dr. Beatty's Lab.
