The Graduate Program in Oral Biology at the University of Minnesota trains students to initiate independent research programs. Exclusively conducting basic science research, students enjoy considerable flexibility in planning their coursework to accommodate specific areas of interest. Graduates are prepared for employment in universities, dental schools, corporate research and development and oral research centers.
Students are encouraged to focus in one of our five areas of special emphasis. The calendars in these documents are merely suggestions. Each student will receive customized training.
- Biomaterials and Biomechanics
- Epithelial Biology and Carcinogenesis
- Bone Biology, Craniofacial Development, and Tissue Engineering
- Microbiology and Immunology
