The Jennifer Ann Wilson Dental Library and Learning Center provides information resources and support primarily for the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC faculty, staff and students and selectively for the general oral healthcare community and the public. Library services are designed to anticipate and to be responsive to information needs for teaching, learning, research and healthcare.
CENTER FOR CRANIOFACIAL MOLECULAR BIOLOGY ↗
CCMB is a research laboratory located on the Health Sciences Campus of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. This group has established an outstanding record of research accomplishments, making significant new discoveries in areas, including molecular genetics of tooth development, molecular etiology of cleft lip and cleft palate and rescue, enamel matrix formation and biomineralization, stem cell-mediated craniofacial tissue regeneration and much more.
Addressing complex health issues requires collaboration across disciplines, across campus and across the country. Ostrow actively contributes to the major research initiatives designated by USC leadership for campus-wide focus.
