The M.S. curriculum is of approximately two years’ duration and is particularly suited for those dental graduates who wish to obtain further basic science training before entering or while obtaining a clinical specialty.
The Graduate Program in Oral Biology and Pathology at Stony Brook University is also of particular interest to industrial-based scientists seeking additional training and advanced degrees.
While the Department is interested in all aspects of oral biology, active programs of research presently being conducted include the following: development, metabolism, and control of the oral microflora on the teeth and various epithelial surfaces; oral putrefaction, malodor, and gingivitis; pathogenesis of periodontitis; interrelationship between systemic and oral diseases; mechanisms and therapy of dentinal hypersensitivity; ultrastructure and metabolism of healthy and diseased periodontal tissues with an emphasis on remodeling and matrix metalloproteinases; chemistry and crystallography of the biological calcium phosphates; biology of epithelial growth and differentiation; epithelial gene therapy; mechanisms of epidermal and oral carcinogenesis; wound repair; biology of skin and mucosal grafting; acquired and innate immunity; inflammation and fibrosis, and cancer. Further details may be obtained from the graduate program director.
