Oral Biology Research Award presented to Russell

The 2007 Research in Oral Biology Award will be presented today to Dr. Michael Russell, Professor, Department of Microbiology/Immunology/Oral Biology, at the State University of New YorkBuffalo, as well as Associate Director of the Witebsky Center for Microbial Pathogenesis and Immunology.

Dr. Russell has a long and distinguished career in research in mucosal immunology and the description of the protein antigens on the bacterium most associated with dental caries, Streptococcus mutans. His studies have been well-received by the scientific community, since he has over 180 publications in prestigious journals and has been invited to present his work at more than 40 institutions around the world. He holds several patents in the area of vaccine technology. One of his most influential contributions was the discovery of an important adhesin, Antigen I/II. This discovery began a worldwide investigation into its structure and the role of this adhesin in promoting the entry of S. mutans into the oral biofilm, dental plaque. This adhesin has become one of the primary targets for immunological interventions in caries development. He also made landmark observations in the induction and sustainability of the mucosal immune response. His group was the first to apply intranasal immunization approaches to induce protective levels of antibody in the saliva. The significance of this approach is marked by the fact that, today, intranasal immunization is the route of choice for most experimental and commercial mucosal vaccines. More recently, he has opened up new research territory in studies of the mucosal immunity and vaccine development in gonorrhea.

Dr. Russell receives his award during the Opening Ceremonies of the 85th General Session of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), convening at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
