Department of Oral biology
Oral biology is that area of knowledge that deals with the structure, development, and function of the oral tissues; their interrelationships; and their relation to other organ systems in both health and disease. It comprises of two relating subjects; Oral Histology and Tooth Morphology. This specialty is concerned with the study of the nature of the oral and craniofacial tissues along with the application of basic scientific knowledge to oral tissues in health and diseased state. This subject is taught in 2nd Year BDS Professional.It includes the study of embryology, growth and development, coupled with details of structure, composition and functions of cells, tissues and organs of the oral cavity. It comprises both Basic Medical Sciences and Clinical Dental Sciences.
New fields in oral biology which are being introduced are disciplines of molecular biology, genetics, microbiology and immunology, genomics, biochemistry, biophysics, craniofacial development, pharmacology, physiology, and cancer biology. Blending of these disciplines will help in management, cure and prevention of diseases and developmental defects.The department offers a highly dynamic and supportive research and training environment for undergraduates. Our aim is to broaden our commitments to cutting edge research and training in the molecular basis of diseases that affect people around the world.
