WELCOME TO THE SALIVARY BIOSCIENCE COMMUNITY
The mission of IISBR is to:
- Advance knowledge of biobehavioral processes for health and recovery from illness with a focus on the empirical, clinical, and applied potential of non-invasive biomarkers measured with high ecological validity.
- Build and maintain collaborative scientific programs to evaluate and translate the value of biomarkers to improve individual and community health.
- Provide specialized training, education, and consultation in the use and translation of Salivary Bioscience.
- Enable access to laboratory services to the University of California and broader scientific community for the assessment of salivary and other complementary biomarkers.

We’ve highlighted some of the more than 85 different projects ongoing at the Institute.
The minimally-invasive nature of saliva sample collection, and the broad range of potential measurements, enables oral fluids to be employed in a wide range of fields and disciplines. These features open a window of opportunity for researchers from traditionally non-biologically oriented fields such as economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, gerontology, nursing, social work, preventive medicine, dentistry, medicine, occupational science, sports medicine, psychiatry, neuroscience, and more.
