Craniofacial Biology Award presented to Vargervik

The 2007 Craniofacial Biology Research Award is being presented today to Dr. Karin Vargervik, Professor and Interim Chair, Division of Orthodontics, Department of Orofacial Sciences, University of California, San Francisco, USA. The award is part of the Opening Ceremonies of the 85th General Session of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), convening at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.

Dr. Vargervik received her dental training at the Medizinische Akademie in Dusseldorf, Germany, and her Orthodontic training at the University of Oslo, Norway. In the late 1960s, she was a research fellow at the then-Forsyth Dental Center (now Forsyth Institute) in Boston, Massachusetts, after which she accepted a faculty position at the University of California, San Francisco, where she has been a Professor since 1982.

Dr. Vargerviks research interests and activities have focused on experimental and clinical issues relating to bone formation and bone remodeling in the craniofacial region. Her clinical research includes investigations of the following: (1) characteristics of growth and development in cleft lip and palate, hemifacial microsomia, and craniosynostosis syndromes; (2) factors contributing to abnormal development; (3) effects of the neuromuscular system on bone morphology and growth patterns; (4) stability of craniofacial skeletal components after major reconstructive procedures; and (5) treatment outcomes following various types of management procedures in a team environment.

Her experimental research has focused on the following: (1) adaptations of muscles and bone to changed functional demands; (2) factors contributing to malocclusions, such as tongue and mandible posture and changes in mode of respiration; (3) characterizing environments favorable and unfavorable for maintenance of bone size and morphology; and (4) new bone formation in controlled experimental sites.
