To conduct interdisciplinary research in contemporary fields of oral healthcare, IIT-Kharagpur, IIEST Shibpur and Guru Nanak Institute of Dental Sciences and Research (GNIDSR) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding.
“Millions of people, especially from the economically underprivileged sections of our society, today suffer from oral and dental diseases, particularly from oral pre-cancer and cancer,” said Sardar Taranjit Singh, Managing Director, JIS Group Educational Initiatives, which runs GNIDSR.
“But no breakthrough has yet been achieved towards treatment and management of these malignant diseases resulting in the loss of millions of lives,” Singh said.
He said taking into consideration this situation, GNIDSR has taken the initiative to conduct advanced multi-disciplinary research in the areas of oral cancer and pre-cancers, stem cells, tissue engineering, biomaterials, implants and sensors by entering into this MoU jointly with IIT-Kharagpur and IIEST (Shibpur).

SK Bhattacharya, Deputy Director IIT-Kharagpur said it was necessary to take cancer gnomonic and image analysis to the next level and “in the future we are planning to conduct advanced research in stem cells”.
Ajoy Roy, Director, IIEST Shibpur, said dental caries and periodontal diseases are the most common oral pathoses for tooth loss making an individual orally and facially crippled.
Biomaterial, bio-sensors and tissue engineering research will be of immense help to manage dental caries and to fabricate cost effective artificial prosthesis and implants, he said.
