In 2024, Koo and Steager sat down with Penn Today to discuss this technology’s potential not only to brush teeth, but also to diagnose and treat infectious diseases–in teeth and beyond.
In search of a more effective treatment, the research team employed a combination of ferumoxytol (Fer) and stannous fluoride (SnF2) to fight tooth decay.
The symposium featured presentations and research posters by CiPD faculty and trainees in the Center’s NIDCR T90/R90 Postdoctoral Training Program as well as invited speakers.
Penn Dental Medicine and Penn Engineering Faculty Invent Nanorobotic system That Offers new options for targeting fungal infections
This research team has developed a new way to accurately target and quickly destroy fungal cells in the mouth by using nanorobots guided by magnets.
Penn Dental Medicine Researchers Develop Plant-based, oral method of insulin delivery that regulates blood sugar levels similar to natural insulin
Henry Daniell and his team of researchers developed a new plant-based, oral method of insulin delivery that regulates blood sugar levels similar to natural insulin.
Koo and Steager's magnetic, scalable, tether-free robotic devices can be used for diagnostics via retrieval and sampling of biofilms associated with infectious diseases.

Penn Dental Medicine Study Finds That Cavity-causing Microbes Have the Ability to Form Superorgranisms that Can Crawl on Teeth
A Penn Dental Medicine study found that cavity-causing microbes have the ability to form superorgranisms that can sprout “limbs” that propel them to“leap” to quickly spread on the tooth surfaces.
In their research, the team used SIS stem cells derived from gingival tissue to treat transected facial nerve and sciatic nerve crush injuries in rats.
Penn Medicine to Conduct New Clinical Trial to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of Chewing Gum Designed by School of Dental Medicine Researchers to Trap SARS-CoV-2 in Saliva
The trial will recruit participants from a pool of Penn Medicine employees whose responses to the PennOpen Pass screening system indicate that they may be infected with COVID-19.
