University of Maryland Schools of Dentistry and Medicine receive NIH grant
Date:7/29/2014

by a genomics core led by Dr. Ravel, which will leverage the state-of-the-art capabilities of the Genomics Resource Center and the Informatics Resource Center at the IGS. Additional STI expertise will be provided by biomathematician Dr. David Wilson, of the Kirby Institute, Queensland University of Technology, Sydney, Australia, gonorrhea expert Dr. Alison Criss, University of Virginia, network analysis epidemiologist Dr. David Shoham, Loyola University Chicago and immunologist Dr. Khalil Ghanem, Johns Hopkins University.

The program is based at the University of Maryland, Baltimore, a leading institution in the study of infectious diseases with particular strengths in bacterial pathogenesis, vaccine development, human virology and microbial genomics.

Mark Reynolds, DDS, PhD, MA, Professor and recently named Dean of the University of Maryland School of Dentistry remarked "This grant highlights the ever growing, mutually beneficial, cooperative relationship between the UM SOM and the UM SOD on multiple interdisciplinary research fronts." He adds "Our school is committed to the concept of global health, and this project on sexually transmitted infections, which are particularly relevant to oral health, is an important focus of our research activities and an essential component of the education portfolio of the modern oral health practitioner."

"This new NIH NIAID grant is a clear indication of the quality of research and leadership at the UM SOM in studying infectious disease," said E. Albert Reece, MD, PhD, MBA, vice president for medical affairs at the University of Maryland, and John Z. and Akiko K. Bowers distinguished professor and dean of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. "Our application of large-scale genomics and bioinformatics approaches to investigate the prevention and treatment of STIs truly represents the future of biomedical research."
