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

ed for state-of-the-art genomics and proteomics research.

"This is the second time in the UCLA School of Dentistry's history that it has applied for and won an NIH construction grant," said Steve Olsen, UCLA vice chancellor for finance, budget and capital programs. "The first such grant created the Jane and Jerry Weintraub Center for Reconstructive Biotechnology, which also was established under Dean Park's tenure."

The school's new research facility will be named for Felix and Mildred Yip, noted philanthropists within Southern California's Asian American community who have been generous supporters of UCLA and the School of Dentistry.

In 2004, a pledge of support from the Yips was instrumental in the dental school securing a fundable score for this major construction project. However, the NCRR was unable to provide the necessary matching funds to advance the renovation because of federal budget problems. This spring, one of the Obama administration's economic stimulus initiatives breathed new life into the shelved grant.

"The resurrection of our construction grant application and now the news of this sizable award are exciting developments at the dental school," said David Wong, the school's associate dean of research and a pioneer in the field of salivary diagnostics who developed the first standardized saliva-based test for oral cancer.

Wong holds the Felix and Mildred Yip Endowed Professorship in Dentistry and will serve as the director of the UCLA Yip Center for Oral/Head & Neck Oncology Research.

"We are energized thinking about what this research facility will mean for oral cancer research and for translational science," Wong said. "We hope the Yip Center will be the site of many discoveries that better inform our understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of many different types of disease."
