Mission: The Center will identify and characterize the pathogenic virulence mechanisms, bacterial/bacterial interactions, and the host inflammatory and immune responses involved in the initiation, progression, and prevention of periodontal diseases. This information will be used to design or identify potential vaccines, anti-inflammatory agents, antibacterial drugs, and gene-transfer therapeutic approaches to the treatment and prevention of periodontal diseases in children, adults, and the elderly. An active clinical component of the center will provide clinical and technical avenues for the testing and transfer of scientific findings to the clinical setting.
