Scientist receives $450K+ to develop self-cleaning dental material

The National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research has granted $459,000 to Jirun Sun, PhD, a scientist with the American Dental Association Science & Research Institute, to develop self-cleaning dental material.

The proposed research would aim to develop pH-responsive "smart" materials that prevent biofilm formation.

Successful completion of the project would advance research into materials that could reduce dental infection and pain.
