NYU Dental Researchers Awarded NIH Grant for Microbiome Research to Identify Biomarkers for Tongue Cancer

The research focuses on the oral microbiome and disruptions in its normal balance, using next-generation sequencing, new molecular technologies which now permit far more comprehensive analyses of the bacterial community in the mouth. Researchers aim to learn how to diagnose aggressive cancers earlier, modulate the microbiome, and prevent or slow the oral cancer progression.
