Meet School of Dentistry Dean John Sauk

Abstract:
What is your vision for the School of Dentistry?

The dental school faces a number of challenges. It is imperative to have strong programs in discovery and research and ours must continue to grow. I see that occurring in a very interdisciplinary way. There should be no silos isolating the different schools.

Right now I'm interested in incorporating nanotechnology into our research portfolio. In essence this field focuses on miniaturization, e.g. utilizing small gold particles and attaching drugs or imaging agents for treatment or diagnosis. Other approaches may include the development of biomotors at the nanoscale that can enhance physiological function. Nanotechnology started in engineering; now biologists are working to catch up.
