About

The Graduate Program in Oral Biology and Pathology, within the Health Sciences Center at Stony Brook University, offers a program of study and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. 

Overview

Key Features

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.
