Two papers published from the Faculty of Dentistry, Oral & Craniofacial Sciences have been selected for the covers for the September and October issues of the Journal of Dental Research (JDR).
The September issue featured Professor Abigail Tucker's research on Dual Sympathetic Input into Developing Salivary Glands. The results published in the Journal of Dental Research highlighted for the first time the detailed developmental time course of TH-expressing neurons during murine SG development and suggest a role for these neurons in branching morphogenesis.

The October issue will feature Professor Jeremy Green's research into Molar Bud-to-Cap Transition. The paper discusses how their results on molar bud-to-cap can be reconciled with the previous models and data.
