Isolation of utricle hair bundles from Peter Barr-Gillespie’s analysis of the proteome of hair-cell stereocilia. Ferracane’s new model draws on Barr-Gillespie’s technique.
Ferracane’s work focuses on the structure, function, and clinical performance of dental restorative materials and his team has been developing antimicrobial and remineralizing dental materials containing bioactive glass to enhance the durability and longevity of dental restorations. The vast majority of adults and 60–90 percent of children are affected by tooth decay, making it a significant public health issue.
The University Shared Resources pilot funds, along with scientists and technology at the PSR, allowed Ferracane’s team to collect preliminary data sufficient to begin writing the NIH grant application and a manuscript for publication.

Just a friendly reminder that if you plan to submit a grant to a foundation or corporation on the OHSU President’s List, you are required to submit a Notice of Intent form to the OHSU Foundation. The purpose of the President’s List is to ensure that OHSU maintains coordinated communication with these organizations. Additionally, some organizations are reserved for top institutional priorities as determined by senior OHSU leadership.
