Latest News: Salivary Uric Acid Assay – Now Available
Making A Difference
Salivary Bioscience is an emerging discipline and its application is advancing knowledge in many scientific fields around the world.
Mission & Goals
We aim to push the edge of knowledge related to discovery and application of oral fluid as a research and diagnostic specimen through its practical application in research studies.
See how the IISBR is facilitating research and reveal the breadth in which saliva is being integrated, our affiliations across the globe, and a network of numbering in the hundreds.

IISBR – Serving Your Research Needs

Are you ready to increase your study’s impact? See how the IISBR can benefit your study.

The Institute is a shared resource, staffed by professional technical and administrative personnel with specialties in coordinating research, managing laboratory operations, conducting salivary assays, and administering budgets, that serves as a scientific hub so researchers with common interests can gather to exchange ideas and develop collaborations among an international network of scientists.

With collaborations at the IISBR you can learn from prior experiences of others already active in the field of salivary bioscience. In our experience, collaborative science creates and moves “big ideas” forward. We know that functional scientific teams need to be composed of individuals who have interdisciplinary and specialized skills/knowledge, but also speak some common language to facilitate collaboration and innovation. Collaborate with us and your project’s “dream team” is likely to be composed of investigators from many different Universities and countries.

Research Highlights

We’ve highlighted some of the more than 85 different projects ongoing at the Institute here.

The minimally-invasive nature of saliva sample collection, and the broad range of potential measurements, enables oral fluids to be employed in a wide range of fields and disciplines. These features open a window of opportunity for researchers from traditionally non-biologically oriented fields such as economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, gerontology, nursing, social work, preventive medicine, dentistry, medicine, occupational science, sports medicine, psychiatry, neuroscience, and more.
