Dr. Andrew Leask awarded major Arthritis Society grant

Congratulations to Dr. Andrew Leask, Schulich Dentistry Professor and a member of the interdisciplinary Bone and Joint Institute, who was awarded a major Arthritis Society grant. This grant is among seven announced nationally, as part of the Arthritis Society’s commitment to fund $2.1-million annually to researchers conducting cutting-edge projects during the next three years.

The Leask research team will examine whether a specific protein inhibitor might be used to halt or treat scleroderma fibrosis. Scleroderma is an auto-immune disease that results in the build-up of tough, fibrous scar tissue in the skin and other organs.  They are working to discover whether YAP1 (yes-associated protein) is responsible for generating the scar tissue, and whether YAP1 inhibitors could be used to treat scleroderma.

David Feere toured historic Beale Street in Memphis while attending the Hinman Student Research Symposium

October - David Feere, DDS 2018, attended the Hinman Student Research Symposium in Memphis in October to present his poster entitled: “The Effect of Matrix Stiffness on Fibroblast Gene Expression.”  Feere (supervised by Dr. Andrew Leask iFeere at symposiumn Dentistry's Summer Research Program), competed for this travel award at Schulich Dentistry's 2016 Annual Research Day.  Feere remarked, “Research presentations by students broadened my understanding of what research may allow dentists to do clinicallyGraceland, in the future, to achieve better outcomes for patients”. During a tour of the Graceland mansion, over the local fare of catfish and smoked meat, and during an evening enjoying the live blues music on the historic Beale Street, Feere was able to interact with fellow colleagues and share research and clinical experiences.

The Hinman Student Research Symposium is a national meeting featuring presentations of research studies undertaken by dental students and graduate trainees from over 60 dental schools across North America. The goal of this symposium is to help raise and maintain the quality of dental research and education by encouraging participation of dental students, graduate trainees and dental school faculty in research to improve oral health care. “I am extremely grateful for representing Schulich; this experience would not have been possible without the Dentistry Summer Student Research Program,” Feere commented.  “For any student who has an interest in research, I would highly recommend pursuing that interest.  You never know where research will take you, what you will learn, or who you will meet along the way”.  

Andrei Zaharia (DDS 2018), attends Colgate Dental Students' Conference on Research

October - Andrei Zaharia travelled to Maryland to present his research at the American Dental Association (ADA) Foundation’s 53nd Annual Colgate Dental Students’ Conference in October 2017. Andrei competed for this travel award at Schulich Dentistry's 2016 Annual Research Day with his poster “Novel bioactive, fast-setting and injectable bone cement for bone augmentation”, supervised by Drs. Amin Rizkalla and Jeff Dixon, in Dentistry's Summer Research Program.
A Zaharia
Students had the opportunity to network with a diverse group of individuals at the conference, including students from more than 50 dental schools across Canada and USA, the president of the FDA, the Senior Director of the Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center (VRC), the Global Director of Oral Care from Johnson & Johnson and many others. Panel discussions engaged the students in an open conversation about the various opportunities in the field, including academia, research, military and private practice. While visiting the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the group embarked on a tour of the NanoFab laboratory.

Zaharia remarked, “This aspect of the research center really interested me due to my ties to previous research in nano technology. It really opened my eyes as to what opportunities are available in the dental field related to my previous endeavors andADA Conference expertise”.  Following the tour, a research leader from the VRC presented breakthrough research on promising novel dental materials, aiming to supersede the current composites in the near future. The conference concluded with a visit to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where another panel discussion allowed students to ask questions about various research opportunities, summer programs, scholarships and career paths available. This tour ended with a visit to their clinical research facilities, showcasing stimulating clinical work and ongoing projects.  Zaharia comments, “I feel as though I have been given a glimpse of an entirely different aspect of dental research, one which is extremely exciting and full of opportunities, and the realization that there’s so much more to dentistry than what we learn in our classrooms and clinics”.

Western University researchers use proteins in saliva to diagnose and find clues about Zika virus

Read full article - Western News   August - Researchers at Western University are examining proteins and peptides in saliva in order to detect a person’s exposure to Zika virus. With 70 countries and territories reporting evidence of mosquito-borne Zika virus transmission, there is an increased need for a rapid and effective test for the virus. By analyzing the saliva of a pregnant mother infected with Zika, and her twins – one born with microcephaly and one without – researchers were able to pinpoint the specific protein signature for Zika that is present in saliva. This signature can then be an effective way to screen for exposure. The researchers have received a provisional US patent to develop a simple device that can be used to identify Zika virus peptides in saliva outside of the laboratory. They also discovered important clues about how the virus passes from mother to baby, and its role in the development of microcephaly, a birth defect in which a baby’s head and brain are smaller than expected. “Three months after the babies were born, we collected saliva from the mother and the babies, and the Zika virus peptides were present in the saliva of all three,” said Dr. Walter Siqueira, DDS, PhD, a dental clinician-scientist and associate professor of dentistry at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry. “This is important because we are the first to identify Zika virus in saliva using proteomics.”

 “Discovery of Zika virus in saliva, months after exposure, is quite amazing for our understanding of this infection but also disconcerting for our public health approach in controlling Zika outbreaks. We need to have better, rapid, and cost effective diagnostic test for screening,” said Eric Arts, PhD, chair and professor of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, who co-authored the study. The current diagnostic test used by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention uses blood tests to look for changes to RNA. The drawback to this method is that it is able to detect the virus only up to one week after exposure. Dr. Siqueira points out that because proteins are more stable than RNA, saliva proteomics can detect the virus far longer after exposure than with the traditional method.

“Our paper opened the window of detection to more than 20 days, and in this particular case, nine months after exposure,” said Dr. Siqueira. “This is possible because we are identifying the proteins and the peptides that come directly from the virus and these are more stable and stay longer in the body than RNA.” The study, published online today in the Journal of Dental Research, also suggests a vertical transmission of the virus between mother and baby. It also showed mutations in the amino acid sequence of the peptides that were different for each twin, suggesting that these mutations may play a role in whether or not a baby will develop microcephaly.  MEDIA CONTACT: Crystal Mackay, Media Relations Officer, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry
