ADVANCED RESEARCH AVENUES AT THE ROSEMAN UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH SCIENCES ORTHODONTIC PROGRAM By Prashanti Bollu, DMD, MS, MBA, Director of Dental Research, College of Dental Medicine, Henderson Campus, Roseman University of Health Sciences In November 2013, many political and business community leaders throughout Southern Nevada attended the ribboncutting ceremony for the new Research Laboratory. In this Faculty Files column, we profile Roseman University of Health Sciences' orthodontic program. We will feature other orthodontic programs in future issues, in addition to clinical articles. - Ed. F 22 or a young program that has graduated only three classes thus far, the Advanced Education in Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics/Master in Business Administration (AEODO/MBA) Resi- dency Program at the College of Dental Medicine, Roseman University of Health Sciences in Henderson, NV is making significant advances in research. Two new research tools - the Instron E1000, a dynamic universal testing machine, and the QLF-D Biluminator 2 System, a fluorescence-based camera technology - will aid us in moving our research forward. OVERVIEW OF THE AEODO/MBA RESIDENCY PROGRAM Under the leadership of Dean & Program Director Dr. Jaleh Pourhamidi, the AEODO/MBA Residency Program has evolved quickly since its inception in 2008. The 35-month residency program admits up to 10 residents per year. At the completion of the program, each receives a certificate in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics as well as an MBA. The curriculum seeks to integrate clinical, research, and business components for careers in clinical orthodontics, academics, or entrepreneurship. NEW RESEARCH FACILITY In the fall of 2013, Roseman completed construction on a new 42,500-square-foot Research Laboratory. The facility brings together researchers from the Colleges of Pharmacy and Dental Medicine and the proposed College of Medicine, broadening the University's commitment to inter-professional education and research. Orthodontic residents now have an opportunity to be involved in cancer, salivary, and drugrelated research. One project resulting from the collaboration with the College of Pharmacy has led to new observations on the anti-cancer effects of known nutraceuticals in oral cancer. Our findings on this novel concept will soon be published. P C S O B U L L E T I N * S P R I N G 2 0 1 4
