Dr. Petra Wilder-Smith is Professor and Director of Dentistry at the University of California, Irvine’s Beckman Laser Institute (BLI). She is a Fellow of the University of California, Irvine’s Comprehensive Cancer Center, Visiting Professor at Aachen University, and Lecturer at Loma Linda University. â¨â¨ Professor Wilder-Smith's research interests include the development and validation of novel non-invasive optical techniques for oral diagnosis, especially early detection and monitoring of oral pre-cancerous and cancerous changes. Her work in this field over the past 20 years has resulted in much collaboration including more than 100 publications, 150 presentations at peer-reviewed scientific meetings, and 200 public lectures. Wilder-Smith is Co-Principal Investigator on an NIH-funded study to develop and test a low-cost portable screening device to detect possible oral cancer for use by field workers in India. Other funded research interests include oral biofilm, dental de- and remineralization, and pulpal vitality interrogation. Additional projects focus on the use of stem cells and other approaches to prevent or mitigate cancer-therapy-induced mucositis. Another area of interest is the development and testing of novel miniaturized optical tools for interrogation of the nasopharyngeal mucosa as a predictor of inhalation damage to the entire airway. Wilder-Smith serves on many advisory boards, including the Medical Advisory Board to Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation, the Board of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, as well as the Editorial Boards of the journals Lasers in Surgery & Medicine, Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, and Journal of Biomedical Optics. Wilder-Smith has also served on the board of the Diagnostic Sciences Group for the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and is currently President of this prestigious group.
