Nanotechnology might soon save you a trip to the dentist. Researchers have developed tiny sphere-shaped particles that ferry a payload of bacteria-slaying drugs to the surface of the teeth, where they fight plaque and tooth decay on the spot.
Therapeutic anti-bacterial agents intended to reduce dental plaque and prevent tooth decay are often removed by saliva and the act of swallowing before they can take effect. But a team of researchers has developed a way to keep the drugs from being washed away.
The National Science Foundation has granted its most prestigious award in support of junior faculty, the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program, to three University researchers: Antonio Badolato, Danielle Benoit, and Michael Neidig.
When stem cells are used to regenerate bone tissue, many wind up migrating away from the repair site, which disrupts the healing process. A new technique keeps the stem cells in place, resulting in faster and better tissue regeneration.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Aids Childhood Cancer Research Danielle Benoit, Ph.D. is accustomed to receiving funding from foundations to support the research in her Therapeutic Biomaterials Lab. But this weekend, Benoit and her students will be the ones raising funds for a foundation. Benoit, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering, and her fellow researchers will be stepping […]
