In addition, two NYUCD dental students received the highly competitive AADR Student Research Fellowships for 2010. Robert Range, '12, won a fellowship for his study of the role of BAX translocation in mitochondrial dynamics, and Hans Hsu, '13, was selected for his research on organogold(III) complexes selectively inducing apoptosis in malignant rather than normal or premalignant oral epithelial cells. Both students were mentored by Dr. Kathleen C. Kinnally, Professor of Basic Science & Craniofacial Biology.

And NYUCD students and faculty made an additional 41 presentations at the July 2010 Annual Meeting of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) in Barcelona. To view details of the presentations, please go to
