Develop Oral Disease Vaccines

Vaccines remain one of the most potent infectious disease prevention tools. The discovery of the oral microbiome has demonstrated that communities of bacteria are critical to maintaining oral health and the development of oral disease. However, keystone species of bacteria often play a disproportionately large role in oral disease (e.g. S. mutans in caries). Oral disease vaccines could be effective in prevention and/or treatment.
