NIDCR grant supports ADAF research efforts

November 04, 2013

A grant to the ADA Foundation from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research will support investigation of dental restorative systems through 2018 at the Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center.

The project, “Novel Dental Composite Restorative Systems with Improved Service Life,” explores new resin-based restorative systems that incorporate smart antibacterial components and may double the life service of current composite restorations.

Dr. Jirun Sun is principal investor at the ADA Foundation's Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center. Contact the center at 301.975.6806 for more information.
