Marco C. Bottino holds the position of Associate Professor in the Department of Cariology, Restorative Sciences, and Endodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. Before joining the University of Michigan, he was an Associate Professor of Biomedical and Applied Sciences and Graduate Program Director in Dental Biomaterials at Indiana University School of Dentistry.
His research interests are in the design and synthesis of tissue scaffolds, drug delivery systems, and stem cell therapies to regenerate dental, oral, and craniofacial tissues. His current research foci are the development of drug delivery system for ablating oral infection, injectable scaffolds for pulp-dentin complex regeneration, multiphasic and tissue specific scaffolds for periodontal tissue reconstruction. More recently, with the acquisition of a unique BioPrinting platform, his laboratory will continue to expand the regenerative dentistry program to address other oral and craniofacial challenges.
