The mission of UMKC-CRISP is to develop methods to improve the quality of life for people who have experienced loss of oral and craniofacial tissues because of age, cancer or trauma. Effective collaborations between the UMKC-CRISP basic science investigators and clinical researchers promotes the translation of the fundamental laboratory results into techniques, procedures and materials that can be used to replace tissues that have been damaged or destroyed by disease, injury or age. Specific initial aims will be to develop a "lab bench-to-clinic" research effort featuring the integrated practice of discovery, application, and clinical assessment.

The UMKC Center for Research on Interfacial Structure and Properties (CRISP) laboratories are located on the 3rd floor of dental school building and provide a wide range of analytical techniques for research and training in life science and biomaterials / bioengineering fields. The laboratories are open for use by students, faculty and staff of school of dentistry.
