Interdisciplinary Salivary Bioscience Research (IISBR),
The Institute is a shared resource that serves as a scientific hub where researchers with common interests can exchange ideas, develop collaborations among a domestic and international network of scientists, and is staffed by professional technical and administrative personnel with specialties in coordinating research, managing laboratory operations, conducting salivary assays, and administering budgets. Researchers can also gain practical knowledge/experience in salivary bioscience, while building relationships, collaborations, and sharing ideas through our salivary bioscience training sessions we call Spit Camp. The Institute’s laboratories and administrative infrastructure is located at UCI, but its affiliated scientists operate in a post-geographic network, wherever in the world they need to be to achieve their research objectives and hail from academic institutions around the world.
