Investigations in the science of periodontology inform the next generation of clinical decisions and laboratory exploration. Promising findings in research explorations in turn help inspire innovations for clinical applications. This course will highlight some of the recent award-winning investigations, providing a sneak peek into future directions for discovery and development.
- Identify the taxonomic and functional capacity of the microbiome in the different disease phenotypes based on the 2017 World Workshop classification.
- Provide a decision matrix for implant treatment case selection and alternative approaches based on a cost-effectiveness analysis.
- Investigate the effect of insulin receptor depletion in gingiva on experimental periodontitis model mice.
- Utilize the transcriptome analysis to identify potential therapeutic target.
