Biotechnology Symposium: Brush Up On Human Oral Health: Salivary Flow and the Human Oral Microbiome

April 19, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm

Engage with representatives from Montgomery College, Frederick Community College, and UMBC as well as local biotechnology industry leaders though our Training & Employment in Biotechnology virtual symposium!

This semester-long symposium will take place online (via Zoom) from 4:00 – 4:45 pm on select Monday afternoons throughout the spring semester. Sessions will focus on a variety of topics related to the intersection of viruses, vaccines, and the biotech industry.

This week’s topic is: Brush Up On Human Oral Health: Salivary Flow and the Human Oral Microbiome. First, a brief introduction to Dr. Proctor’s career arc as a first-generation college student who failed out of a regional university before studying at several community colleges prior to completing a PhD at Stanford University. Then, a discussion regarding the role that salivary flow plays in shaping human oral health, introducing students to the use of phylogenetic marker genes to characterize the composition of the microorganisms that inhabit the human body. Presented by Dr. Diana Proctor, Postdoctoral Fellow, National Human Genome Research Institute.
