Infectious Diseases Research
Studies focus on caries and biofilms and the oral aspects of HIV/AIDS. One group of investigators brings expertise ranging from molecular biology of oral pathogens to molecular epidemiology.
Faculty involved in infectious diseases research include:
The HIV/AIDS Research Program (HARP)
HARP investigates the oral manifestation of HIV/AIDS and anti-HIV therapies. This group has NIH funding that brings together the faculty from basic and clinical research at the NYU College of Dentistry, NYU School of Medicine and the Aaron Diamond AIDS Research Institute and is generating the only bank of specimens from HIV positive subjects pre- and post HAART treatment. Members of this group also have fundamental research projects on oral-based diagnostics.
