Dean James Johnson has announced the official launch of the Timothy A. DeRouen Center for Global Oral Health. He commemorated the notice by highlighting Dr. DeRouen’s significant achievements and everlasting contributions to our School of Dentistry. Dr. Ana Lucia Seminario, Assistant Professor of Pediatric Dentistry and Adjunct Faculty of Global Health, will now direct the center with Dr. DeRouen remaining as the Chair of the Board of Directors. The DeRouen Center’s current line of research focuses on sites in Peru, Kenya, and Thailand, projects ranging from correlations between oral health and systemic disease to the impact of landscape and environment on oral and gut microbiome. This is an exciting development for our Center and for the UW School of Dentistry.
