Toothless no more: Team aims to reduce rejection of implants
from UBC Public Affairs
Don Brunette may well find himself named the patron saint of toothless hockey players. An oral biologist in the Faculty of Dentistry at the University of British Columbia, Brunette seeks to create a better dental implant by understanding how cells behave around different types of implant surfaces. For his research, Brunette draws upon sophisticated methods of microfabrication and nanofabrication that can produce precisely characterized surfaces. He can then examine how cells respond to specific features and shapes of the implant's surface.
