Organization profile

The Minnesota Dental Research Center for Biomaterials and Biomechanics (MDRCBB) is a multi-disciplinary resource dedicated to furthering research and development in biomaterials, and biomechanics. The MDRCBB has the physical facilities, equipment, and faculty expertise for collaborative studies with researchers within and outside the School of Dentistry. This includes faculty from other departments, graduate students, undergraduate dental students, and visiting researchers. The MDRCBB research environment is based on collaboration among the MDRCBB faculty members and other researchers. The Center welcomes researchers to present their ideas to the MDRCBB faculty and to discuss methods that will best achieve their goals. MDRCBB faculty regularly provide their expertise and train researchers in the use of the Center's technology, which include simulators of chewing and tooth brushing, 3D scanning, Finite Element Analysis, the Virtual Dental Patient, Fracture toughness and microhardness testing, and simulations of artificial caries and remineralization.
