Welcome to the Salivary Research Group

The Salivary Research Group forms one of the main scientific groups within the International Association for Dental Research (IADR), the leading forum for dental researchers to present their oral care research results. Salivary research encompasses a broad range of research including salivary gland development and regeneration, functions of saliva proteins, regulation of protein secretion, diagnosis and treatment of oral and/or systemic disorders, salivary diagnostics for various diseases, physiological dysfunction, and much more. The group has a large student membership and offers them unique opportunities to give presentations in both verbal and poster formats to a collection of world experts at the IADR meetings.



Our Mission Statement:

  • To provide a focus and forum within the IADR for the exchange of scientific information related to saliva and salivary glands.
  • To facilitate the exchange of ideas in this field for the exchange of scientific information related to salivary research.
  • To promote the publication of research findings in salivary research.
  • To encourage scientists, young investigators and students to become involved in salivary research by means of seminars and discussions.
  • To help disseminate to the dental profession and the general public research findings in this area.
