Nova Southeastern Researcher Receives Patent for Surface Modification Technology

Posted on May 13, 2014


Jeffrey Thompson, PhD, professor of prosthodontics and director of the Biosciences Research Center in Nova Southeastern University’s College of Dental Medicine, has secured a US patent for developing a surface modification technology to promote chemical bonding between high-performance ceramic materials like alumina and zirconia and biological materials, like tooth structures, and synthetic materials, like dentures and crowns.

The research was conducted with a team of researchers from RTI International in Durham, NC, and funded by a National Institute of Health (NIH)/National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) grant.
