Quarter of a Century of Proteomics: Towards Precision Oral Health

2021 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session

The 99th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 50th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 45th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from July 21-24, 2021 as a Virtual Experience.

The recordings in this library from the meeting are a selection of the science that was to be presented as part of the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, the IADR Academy and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles

Session Description 
The term proteomics was coined in 1994 and refers to the analysis and identification of complex mixtures of proteins. Over the last 26 years the field has accelerated forward with the rapid changes in mass spectrometry instrumentation and innovations in quantitative chemistries and informatics advances. A quarter of a century on from its naming proteomics has developed in to a well-established field of research often used in dentistry, in particular for periodontal diseases, for the identification of biomarkers. Novel approaches are now tackling the field of complex protein mixtures derived from more than one species: metaproteomics; and exploring breakdown of protein mixtures: degradomics. These specialized fields of proteomics and their application to oral biological fluids and dental plaque will be explored in this symposium. The deep learning that can now be made from each sample using proteomics allows for even more knowledge acquisition than ever before. Such in-depth proteomic mapping of oral biofluids may support patient stratification and precision oral health.

Learning Objectives
  • Attendees will expand their knowledge on cutting edge proteomics techniques for investigating oral biofilms, biofluids and tissues.
  • Attendees will learn about efficient workflows for proteomic profiling of oral samples.
  • Attendees will learn about potential applications of integrative omics tools for precision oral health.
