"Illicit Drug Use and its Oral Health Consequences"

Vivek Shetty

Dr. Shetty’s research interests are defined by the significant and disproportionate burden of traumatic injury and its sequelae in vulnerable populations (e.g., socioeconomically marginalized racial/ethnic minorities, uninsured, elderly) and sited at the intersection of discovery science and patient care. Through synergistic, transdisciplinary collaborations with bioengineers, computer scientists, psychologists, surgeons and systems biologists, he develops innovative, technology-based strategies to facilitate timely recognition and personalized interventions for trauma-related psychopathology. His research program has been funded continuously since 1993 through multiple NIH grants and recognized by several awards including the OMSF 2011 Research Recognition Award for Outstanding Contributions. Dr. Shetty has published over 125 research articles, books chapters and books and serves as an editorial consultant and scientific reviewer for numerous specialty journals and research organizations.
