Oral-Based Diagnostics

Oral-Based Diagnostics

Tuesday, October 10, 2006 - Friday, October 13, 2006

Lake Lanier Islands, GA

Presented By

Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences


Oral-based diagnostics have the potential to detect systemic disease and evidence of exposure to various harmful substances, as well as provide biomarkers of health and disease status. Integration of novel approaches to oral based diagnostics is expanding to include genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and nanotechnology. Improved technologies for diagnostics are resulting in more "user-friendly" methods. Efforts to translate bench assays to commercial products in the area of oral diagnostics have increased recently as witnessed by the appearance of several new oral based diagnostic products in the market place. Collaborative academic, government and industry relationships in this arena are also forming all of which will undoubtedly serve to rapidly advance the field. One of the aims of this symposium is to bring together leaders in the areas of toxicology, pathology, oral biology, dental research, and clinical medicine to discuss advances in the field of oral diagnostics, and to permit the initiation of new collaborations.
