UCLA School of Dentistry to build new cancer research facility
Date:9/14/2009

The UCLA School of Dentistry consistently ranks among the country's top dental schools in National Institutes of Health funding. During the past three fiscal years, the school has secured nearly $30 million in grants for oral cancer research and research training. Now, the dental school has received a major infusion of construction funding for the creation of the UCLA Yip Center for Oral/Head & Neck Oncology Research.

As a result of funds made available by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the NIH's National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) has awarded more than $5 million for the state-of-the-art complex, which will consolidate and expand the school's ongoing translational research in the biology, detection and treatment of oral cancer.

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, oral cancer is the sixth most common cancer in men and the 14th most common cancer in women in the United States. On average, only half of those diagnosed with the disease will survive more than five years. Oral cancer will kill approximately one person every hour this year.

"This visionary funding will enable the dental school to become a nexus of multidisciplinary, collaborative research," said No-Hee Park, dean of the UCLA School of Dentistry and the principal investigator for the construction grant. "Our goal is to make UCLA the home of the premier head and neck and oral oncology research program in the nation, a place where we find new methods for the early diagnosis and treatment of this devastating disease."

Existing outmoded laboratories within the dental school building in UCLA's Center for the Health Sciences will be demolished to construct a 6,660-square-foot facility comprising a large, open wet laboratory, a central core support facility and a conference room. The new lab will include chemical fume hoods, tissue-culture support and a dark room and will be specifically design
