Lecture Features Tissue Engineering
The second in the new OHSU School of Dentistry Dean’s Seminar Series featured Jacques Nör, D.D.S., Ph.D., the Donald A. Kerr Professor of Dentistry in the department of cariology, restorative sciences, and endodontics at the University of Michigan.
“The amazing thing about Jacques is that he has three R01 NIH Research Grants, and it’s hard enough to get one these days,” said Jack Ferracane, Ph.D., professor and chair of restorative dentistry. “One reason he is so successful is that Jacques is a true collaborator. He has definite research interests and he finds people with whom to work.”
Dr. Nör presented his latest research into the engineering of dental pulp with human stem cells, which included unpublished research.
The next School of Dentistry Dean’s seminar is set for Feb. 19 and will feature Paul Glassman, D.D.S., M.A., M.B.A., professor of dental practice and director of community oral health and the Pacific Center for Special Care at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. Dr. Glassman has been devoted to developing innovative residency training models and community-based systems to improve oral health for people with special needs and his lecture is titled, “Oral Health Quality Improvement Efforts in an Era of Accountability.”
OHSU faculty, students, staff, alumni, and friends are welcome to attend.
