Research Summary:

Dr. Goldberg’s research interests focus on the development of new dental materials, studies of structure-property relationships and more recently biomaterial-cell interactions. The work on new materials has involved titanium alloys for orthodontic application, fiber-reinforced composites (FRC) for various dental clinical applications and biocatalyzed mineralization.
