Founding Team

StefanRuhl.jpgStefan Ruhl DDS, PhD is Professor of Oral Biology in the School of Dental Medicine at the University at Buffalo, New York, U.S.A., where he studies the glycan-mediated mechanisms of bacterial adhesion to salivary proteins. He is a past President of the IADR Salivary Research Group, and recipient of the IADR Salivary Researcher of the Year Award. His scientific projects have been funded through the NIDCR since 2010.
MarkusHardt.jpgMarkus Hardt, PhD is Assistant Member of the Staff at The Forsyth Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts and directs the Forsyth Center for Salivary Diagnostic – Mass Spectrometry Core. His research program focuses on using mass spectrometry to study the salivary proteome and peptidome and proteolytic processing in the context of diseases including cancer pain and Sjögren’s disease.
MarceloFreire.jpgMarcelo Freire, DDS, PhD, DMSc is an Associate Professor of Genomic Medicine Department at the J. Craig Venter Institute. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Infectious Diseases of the School of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. He is the Past President of the IADR Clinical and Translational Science Network. As a dual-scientist and clinician, Dr. Freire’s research focuses on the role of immune response to the oral microbiome. His current NIH funded research program focuses on finding immune signals that are common to oral and systemic chronic inflammation. Dr. Freire has been pioneering the understanding of salivary immune networks at the single cell level to enable better understanding of oral-systemic links in immunity. By learning from complex host-microbial interactions, Freire’s team are shedding light to novel diagnostics and therapeutic targets for oral, dental and craniofacial health and disease.
FrankOppenheim.jpgFrank G. Oppenheim DDS, DMD, PhD is Professor and Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine Distinguished Scientist at Boston University. His research has focused on elucidation of structure and function of salivary proteins with particular emphasis on host defense mechanisms. His research has encompassed basic science approaches as well as translational investigations.
WalterSiqueira.jpgWalter Siqueira DDS, PhD leads a research program that is unique in Canada and one of only a few in the world in the emerging field of salivary proteomics. His program employs cutting-edge proteomics to address early-stage disease pathogenesis, as well as other areas of salivary research such as the development of non-invasive salivary diagnostic tests for oral and systemic diseases.
DavidWong.jpgDavid T.W. Wong DMD, DMSc is Felix & Mildred Yip Endowed Professor, Associate Dean of Research and Director of the Oral/Head and Neck Oncology Research Center at UCLA. Dr. Wong is an active scientist in oral cancer and saliva diagnostics research. He has authored over 280 peer reviewed scientific publications. He is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS), past member of the ADA Council of Scientific Affairs and the past president of American Association of Dental Research (AADR).
