A new instrument being developed at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and Dental Clinics, with the support of the UI Research Foundation, uses light to simultaneously clean and stimulate the regeneration of healthy tissue in inflamed or infected root canal spaces of the mouth.
It’s never too early to start strategizing about how to write a winning grant proposal that will get attention and bring in research funding.
A root canal can be challenging under the best of circumstances, for the patient and the dentist.
While the patient may be happily oblivious to the experience thanks to the miracle of modern-day anesthetics, the endodontist faces twin challenges while rooting around in your mouth: thoroughly and quickly cleaning and disinfecting the area being treated, and promoting rapid healing.
A new journal article by a senior licensing associate in the University of Iowa Research Foundation (UIRF) argues that academic tech transfer activities contribute enormously to society and the economy, and that diminishing funding of those efforts jeopardize U.S. dominance in research-based discovery and innovation.
The University of Iowa is among the world’s top 100 producers of patents among higher educational institutions, according to data from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office gathered by the National Academy of Inventors.
