Interdisciplinary and international research/education based on interface oral health science

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Based on the new concept of “Interface Oral Health Science”, Tohoku University Graduate School of Dentistry has performed (1) interdisciplinary research/education, such as the integration of biological dentistry and material science, and (2) international research/education through international symposia/conferences where graduate students participate as active researchers. In addition, two international programs of graduate education, the Global 30 Program (year 2011) and the Double-Degree Program (year 2012) are expected to launch for overseas students. Interdisciplinary and international research/education is essential for oral science in the future, since oral science is closely related with other research fields and can be developed through mutual and synergistic interactions with other research fields.
