October 2020 – Bruno Lima

0 91

Bruno Lima is a research assistant professor at the University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry in the Department of Diagnostic and Biological Sciences, Minneapolis. Lima received his dental degree from the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte in Brazil and his Ph.D. from the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Loyola University, Chicago. His research focuses on understanding how bacteria interact with their environment and the consequence of these interactions on their physiology. As a dentist, Lima is particularly interested in studying how different environmental interactions affect dental plaque development and whether these interactions can be manipulated to promote oral health. Lima has authored several peer-reviewed articles, he is currently the recipient of a career development award (K08) from the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) and was recently selected as the recipient of the 2020 American Association of Dental Research (AADR)/Procter & Gamble Underrepresented Faculty Research Fellowship.

September 2020 – Karen DeRocher

0 131

Karen A. DeRocher obtained her B.S. in materials engineering from Iowa State University, Ames, in 2013. DeRocher’s undergraduate research involved investigating the oxidation behavior of a high temperature metal alloy. She received her Ph.D. from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University, Evanston, Ill. At Northwestern University her research focused on characterizing enamel on different length scales. Primarily, she was involved in investigating the chemical gradients inside human enamel crystallites and the implications that may have on their chemical and mechanical properties. Additionally, she worked on X-ray diffraction studies investigating the crystallographic orientation of crystallites across enamel rods and comparison to interrod enamel. 

August 2020 – Marco C. Bottino

Marco C. Bottino is an Associate Professor with tenure in the Department of Cariology, Restorative Sciences and Endodontics and Director of the Postgraduate Program in Regenerative Dentistry at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, Ann Arbor.

Bottino received his DDS from the Universidade Paulista, São Paulo, Brazil, his MSc in Nuclear Technology (Materials) from the University of São Paulo (Institute for Energy & Nuclear Research, Brazil), and his PhD in Materials Science from The University of Alabama at Birmingham.

Bottino’s research focuses on the development of drug delivery systems for ablating oral infection and stimulating dental tissue regeneration. Recently, his laboratory has expanded its program to include generating personalized and tissue-specific strategies to regenerate soft and hard tissues by leveraging innovative bioprinting technologies. Bottino served as President of the IADR Dental Materials Group and is a winner of the prestigious IADR Centennial Emerging Leaders Award.

July 2020 – Luciana Shaddox

Luciana Shaddox joined the University of Kentucky, Lexington, Division of Periodontology as a professor with tenure in July 2018 and she became the Associate Dean of Research for the College of Dentistry in July 2019. Shaddox obtained her D.D.S., M.S. at University of Campinas, Brazil, and her Ph.D. at University of Florida, Gainesville, in 2004. She completed a post-doctorate in Oral Microbiology at University of Florida in 2005, became a full-time faculty member in the department of Periodontology in 2006, was tenured in 2012 and remained with the University of Florida until July 2018, when she joined University of Kentucky. Currently, Shaddox directs all research activities, actively participates in Periodontology courses and several college and national committees and has an intense clinical translational research program supported by NIH since 2009. Her main research focus is aimed at evaluating immunological, microbiological and genetic factors involved with localized aggressive periodontal disease in children and adolescents. She has over 60 publications, has been an ad-hoc member of several NIH study sections and is the recipient of several research student-mentored awards and personal awards, including the prestigious American Academy of Periodontology Teaching Award and the University of Florida Professorship Award. 

June 2020 – David Drake

0 420

Dr. David Drake is a professor of microbiology and infectious diseases in the Iowa Institute for Oral Health Research in the UI College of Dentistry. He has served on many NIH Study Sections and was recently a permanent member of the ODCS Study Section. Dr. Drake has had significant NIH funding for the last 10 years and has authored over 100 publications, including being a co-PI of a new 5-year RO1 that was recently funded. He has been trained and has considerable expertise in independent professional development, training and mentoring of post-doc and junior faculty members. As part of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity team, he is committed to helping young researchers develop their research ideas into productive and successful independent careers, and to enhance the diversity of the NIH-funded research workforce. He recently mentored four Postdoctoral Fellows at the UI through the auspices of this program and continues to serve as a national mentor. Dr. Drake served on the AADR Board and was involved in the planning of the IADR Academy Faculty Development Workshop at the IADR/AADR in March 2020. He also co-led a grant-writing course in the College of Dentistry that involves PhD students and Post-Doctoral Fellows.
