Award Description: This application is from the School of Dentistry (SOD) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) in response to the NIDCR RFA-OD-09-005 titled Recovery Act Limited Competition: Supporting New Faculty Recruitment to Enhance Research Resources through Biomedical Research Core Centers (P-30). This RFA is specifically designed to provide institutional awards through the Core Center Grants mechanism to provide funding to hire, provide appropriate start-up packages, and develop pilot research projects for newly independent investigators, with the goal of augmenting and expanding the institutions community of multidisciplinary researchers focusing on areas relevant to the strategic mission of NIDCR. The SOD at UAB is seeking support for the enhancement of our research intense faculty through our established Biomedical Core Center entitled the Institute of Oral Health Research (IOHR). This mechanism will allow the IOHR to hire, provide start-up packages, and develop pilot research projects for newly-independent investigators, with the goal of augmenting and expanding the institution¿s community of multidisciplinary researchers within the SOD IOHR establishing a UAB-wide supported pilot center, Center for Discoveries, Genomics and Therapeutics of Craniofacial and Dental Diseases (CDT-CADD). In particular, we will be seeking to enlarge our cadre of faculty within the area of dental and craniofacial developmental biology and genetics as relevant to the strategic plan of the NIDCR. The IOHR provides support and shared research resources for SOD and UAB faculty from diverse disciplines in order to establish a joint multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis, discovery of the underlying molecular causes and development of novel therapeutics for craniofacial diseases and syndromes. In order to achieve our goal, through this P-30 award we will hire of three new scientists/clinician-scientists with emerging expertise in developmental biology, genetics, proteomics, and/or gene therapy providing them a nurturing and supportive environment to ensure their successful career development. Research start-up resources for the new faculty will include salary support, needed specialized equipment, animal housing costs and materials and supplies for initiating their research. These faculty will strengthen and expand the scientific capacity of the SOD IOHR within our rapid growth focus area of Craniofacial Developmental Biology and Genomics as well as launch their academic research careers.
