NIDCR K99 Research Award #K99DE032428,  $266,268
Investigating the Role of Heterotrimeric G Proteins in Craniofacial Development and Auriculocondylar Syndrome

Pattern formation of the pharyngeal arch establishes the identity of cells that give rise to the bone, cartilage, and connective tissue of the face. Disruptions to this process can lead to a variety of craniofacial birth defects. The overarching goal of this project is to elucidate cell signaling pathways that establish cellular identity so that we can better understand mechanisms of development and disease.

Characterization of PDGFR alpha/beta heterodimers

Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) signaling has been shown to regulate numerous processes throughout the body, both during development and adult life, and aberrant PDGF signaling has been causally associated with defects in craniofacial development, cancer, vascular disorders and fibrotic diseases. Defects in craniofacial development comprise one of the most prevalent birth defects in humans, with an estimated incidence in the United States of 1/940 live births for cleft lip and 1/1,574 live births for cleft palate. The studies proposed here will provide valuable insight into the mechanisms underlying craniofacial development by characterizing dimerization, activation, trafficking and signal molecule binding dynamics for PDGFR a/β heterodimers, which may contribute to the development of new therapeutic directions for the treatment of human craniofacial birth defects.

Dr. Devatha Nair
NIDCR Award #R21DE032135, $429,000
Light-propelled dental adhesives with enhanced bonding capability

The study explores mechanisms by which dental adhesives can be given ‘deep roots’ within dentin, thereby strengthening the overall composite restoration. The adhesive layer within composite restorations (the so-called tooth-colored restorations) is often called the ‘weakest link’ as they are the first layer to fail, causing patient discomfort and the need for additional dental work. The smart nanogels developed in the Nair Lab can be dispersed within commercial dental adhesive formulations such that they swell up and ‘walk away’ from the surface, thereby driving the adhesive deeper within the dentinal tubules.  Such well-anchored adhesives have the potential to strengthen composites, leading to improved function and longevity of such restorations. This work is a collaboration with the Stansbury lab group.

Dr. Jeffrey Stansbury
NIDCR Award #R21DE032797, $441,500
Uniquely high conversion and mechanically robust composite restorative materials for functionally elevated performance

Resins that form the matrix phase of dental composite restorations are typically based on monomers such as BisGMA and UDMA that engage in hydrogen bonding, which serves to reinforce polymer networks. The focus of this project involves a redesign of the number and placement of urethane groups within one of the monomers in combination with complementary diluent comonomers that provide a strong noncovalent engagement with the urethane groups. The result is composite photopolymers that display extremely high strength, hardness and toughness. Additional work will explore the structure-property relationships that include assessment of reactivity, optical properties, wear resistance, fracture toughness and others to allow us to advance excellent candidate materials as potential new dental restorative materials.

NIDCR Award #R01DE030448, $2,134,434
Mechanisms patterning the midface

The human facial skeleton originates from groups of cells in specific positions with unique identities, each instructing the formation of a different skeletal structure. We hypothesize that in human genetic diseases, like frontonasal dysplasia, the ability to establish these identities is disrupted. In this proposal we use zebrafish disease models to investigate a hypothetical identity ‘code’ instructing positional cellular identity, thus informing the etiology of these devastating birth defects.

Dr. Lynn Heasley
The ROS1 -ders, Inc. $75,000
Novel murine ROS1+ cancer models for next-generation therapeutics

ROS1 gene rearrangements encoding oncogenic fusion proteins occur in 1-2% of lung adenocarcinomas as well as subsets of glioblastomas, cholangiocarcinomas, Spitzoid neoplasms and inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors. Precision oncology with ROS1-targeting tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) including crizotinib and entrectinib has greatly improved outcome in ROS1+ lung cancer patients, but as single agents, they rarely provide cures. This project will develop genetically-engineered mouse models (GEMMs) of ROS1+ lung cancer and implantable murine lung cancer cell lines to pursue studies that may overcome multiple hurdles to achieving long-term therapeutic management or cures in these molecularly-defined cancers.

Dr. Tamanna Tiwari

Facilitating Accessibility and Equity in Oral Health for those with Disabilities in the Rocky Mountain Region

The overall aim of this project proposal is to facilitate accessibility and equity in oral healthcare for those living with disabilities in Colorado and the broader Rocky Mountain region. We aim to (1) meaningfully engage with the disability community; (2) strengthen capacity and infrastructure by developing a safety net dental clinic in the Rocky Mountain region for those with disabilities and special healthcare needs (SHCNs); (3) work towards advancing state policy to reduce barriers to care; and (4) train the next generation of dental providers to recognize and prevent discrimination in providing dental care to many with disabilities.


March 2023

Drs. Trevor Williams and Hong Li were awarded a five-year grant of nearly $2.2 million from NIDCR entitled “In utero rescue of cleft lip and palate in a humanized mouse model”. Williams and Li have formed a collaboration with Dr. Jennifer Matsuda at National Jewish Hospital to explore the potential for treating pre-natal treatment to prevent common facial birth defects such as orofacial clefting.

Dr. Katherine Fantauzzo’s NIDCR funded project for over $2.35 million entitled “Srsf3-mediated alternative RNA splicing in craniofacial development” was recently awarded. The major goals of this project are to provide significant insight to mechanisms underlying gene expression regulation during mammalian craniofacial development and new therapeutic directions for the treatment of human craniofacial birth defects.
