UMDNJ Dental School Teaching and Research Centers

Newark, New Jersey

To support funding grant, Urbahn developed the feasibility study and design for the renovation of three research, training, and practice centers: Center for Interdisciplinary Dental Care, Center for Translational Dental and Cranial-Facial Research, and Center for Oral Infectious Disease Research.  The program merges various departments such as orthodontics, prosthodontics, and endodontics.  Our designs integrate research and practice with the goal of creating energizing and interactive environments for students, researchers, and medical practitioners.  A primary objective was to enhance the experience through the reduction of wait time, clarification of wayfinding, and improving patient comfort.  Urbahn’s designs employ a modular planning approach for the research facilities, encompassing behavioral, tissue culturing, and PCR labs.
