Skeletal, Craniofacial and Oral Biology Graduate Program

The Skeletal, Craniofacial and Oral Biology (SCOB) Program is focused on the study of the basic biological properties of skeletal, craniofacial and oral tissues and regeneration of connective tissues. Research in Skeletal, Craniofacial and Oral Biology is problem oriented and multidisciplinary, incorporating contemporary research techniques of cellular and molecular biology, and biochemistry. There are approximately 35 faculty in the SCOB program representing a number of schools, departments, institutes and centers. This interdisciplinary group of scientists is engaged in advancing understanding of the biology of bone, cartilage, teeth, oral tissues and skin and exploring development, maintenance, disease, and the potential for regeneration of these tissues. A Ph.D. in SCOB program can be combined with D.M.D. or M.D. training leading to D.M.D./Ph.D. and M.D./Ph.D. degrees. A Ph.D. in SCOB and also be combined with Dental Clinical Specialty Training.
