Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: Multifunctional Ionic Liquids Coatings for Dental Implant Surfaces

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: Natl Institutes of Health

CFDA Linked: Oral Diseases and Disorders Research


In order to achieve multi-functionalities on implant surfaces, the goal of this proposal is to develop a new generation of coatings using ionic liquid (IL) technology. Aim 1 will study the competition of bacteria and host cells for the surface (“race for the surface”) of IL coated versus non-coated titanium using a co-culture approach. In Aim 2, implants coated with the best-performing IL, as verified in Aim 1, will be investigated in an animal model.
