The Minnesota Dental Research Center for Biomechanics and Biomaterials conducts research in a number of fields, including biomineralization/hard tissue regeneration and biomedical surfaces and interfaces.
History of the MDRCBB
The MDRCBB is an umbrella organization, charged with the management of a large human and physical resource base on a broad platform of research into biomechanics, biomaterials, and related sciences. The MDRCBB was launched when the traditional barriers between University and Industry were coming down - when University and Industry rediscovered each other and realized that their strengths are complementary and that they can leverage each other's ability and productivity by closer cooperation.
