Courses PhD Program in Dentistry

Prof. Marina Roscoe – DDS, MSc, PhD.

Education and Professional Activities
Dr. Roscoe is an orthodontics from Federal University of Uberlândia (UFU), received her Master degree in Dentistry (UFU), and Doctor in Philosophy (PhD) degree in Biomaterials and Oral Biology from University of São Paulo (USP/SP). She was a one year Guest Researcher at the Orthodontics Section at Aarhus University (Denmark) during her PhD. She is an Instructor Professor (Orthodontics and Restorative Dentistry departments) at Guarulhos University (SP, Brazil)

Research Interests
Her main research field is Biomechanics applied to Dentistry, with emphasis on the performance of computational simulations by the finite element method and “in vitro” studies. Others areas of research include tooth movement, orthodontically induced inflammatory root resorption, and evidence-based dentistry focusing on the performance of systematic reviews. 

Other highlights
Dr. Roscoe is an Associate Editor of the Revista Saúde (Brazil) and a reviewer of important journals, such as the International Dental Journal, BMC Oral Health, and the Bioscience Journal.
