C-DOCTOR represents a partnership among several California institutions, which joined forces after the funding of R34 grants from the National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research to teams headed by faculty at USC, UC San Francisco/Berkeley/Davis, and UCLA & Stanford.
Our vision is to assemble a comprehensive and dynamic team of clinicians, research scientists, biostatisticians, regulatory scientists, and pre-clinical/clinical trial experts to enable the development and clinical implementation of innovative approaches for dental, oral, and craniofacial tissue regeneration.
C-DOCTOR is supported by U24 DE026914 from the National Institute of Dental & Craniofacial Research, National Institutes of Health.
Registration is now open for the Summer 2019 C-DOCTOR Retreat on June 3-4 at UCLA, in conjunction with an Industry Showcase Day on June 4. The tentative agenda is available here and registration is available here.
Congratulations to our Cycle 3 ITP Team Awardees! See our research page for more details.
C-DOCTOR is led by clinician-scientists from Northern and Southern California with a strong track record of innovation and collaboration in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Interdisciplinary translational project teams
Our mission is to enable promising Interdisciplinary Translational Project (ITP) teams to accelerate research towards clinical trials for dental, oral, and craniofacial TE/RM products.
C-DOCTOR's value to ITP teams goes beyond financial support. Click to read more about the comprehensive scientific and advisory resources available to C-DOCTOR-funded ITP teams.
