Science Knows No Country

The principal purpose of the film is to show the importance of international collaborative oral health research, and to communicate that NIDCR supports not only U.S. researchers, but also desires to fund the best research anywhere in the world. To illustrate the value of international collaborative research, the video focuses on two institute efforts: a research program in Africa looking at noma, a form of gangrene that attacks the face, and a cleft lip-cleft palate study in the Philippines. "Science Knows No Country" is dedicated to the memory of the late Dr. David Barmes, one of the video's featured researchers, who served as special expert for international health at NIDCR."
