Kyle and Adam were the recipients of the Emerging Technologies Prize at a Royal Society of Chemistry meeting in London, UK on June 16, 2016 for their work on a novel therapeutic biomaterial for regenerative dental applications. They are developing synthetic, light-curable, therapeutic biomaterials for dental treatments that support native dental stem cells inside teeth to repair and regenerate damaged tooth structure. The approach could significantly impact millions of dental patients each year by dental fillings that help heal teeth when they are injured from dental disease or surgery.
Graduate student Kyle Vining, DDS, has been awarded a K08 Mentored Clinical Scientist Research Career Development Award from the NIH/NIDCR for his proposal entitled “Anti-inflammatory mesenchymal stem cell therapy for dental applications." Congratulations!
Adam awarded an early career researcher award by the Biomaterials Interfaces Division (BID) at the American Vacuum Society (AVS) conference!
