Diabetes Research

December 09, 2010

Mike Border, a senior biochemistry major of Strongsville, OH, recent­ly received first place in the dental research cat­egory at the American College of Prosthodon­tics’ national conference in Orlando, FL. As the only undergraduate student in attendance, his work investigated salivary proteomes and their potential development into diagnostic tools for type II diabetes.
 
The national conference focuses on innovations in the field of oral prosthetics, implant procedures and tissue regeneration therapies. Within the category of dental research, he competed against 60 other individuals ranging from dental students to doctoral candidates. The competition consisted of a poster presentation and an oral defense of his research to a panel of six judges.
