We've highlighted some of the more than 85 different projects ongoing at the Institute above.
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. Salivary Bioscience creates research opportunities for not only biologically related fields (i.e. sports medicine, psychiatry, neuroscience), but also traditionally non-biologically oriented fields such as economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, gerontology, social work, animal welfare and more.
In the history of science, major advances are often made at the interface created by interdisciplinary integration. A core mission of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Salivary Bioscience Research is to create that opportunity and enable access so that researchers in traditionally non-biologically oriented fields of study can explore this interface.
