1. Brief introduction
“To learn, to think, to care and to devote” is the motto of the Stomatology of Shanghai JiaoTong University (SSJTU). Founded in 1932, SSJTU is one of the earliest and leading stomatological disciplines established in China. SSJTU consists of 13 affiliated hospitals, and its main teaching, scientific research and clinical bases are located at Shanghai Ninth People's hospital. SSJTU has been included in all of the major discipline construction projects led by the Chinese government, including National Key Disciplines, "211" Project, and "Double First-Class" Disciplines, and others.The annual number of outpatient and emergency visits in SSJTU exceeds 1.4 million, and over 32,000 outpatient operations and over 13,000 inpatient operations are performed annually. More than 70% of patients are from across China and overseas nations, and over 50% of patients present with difficult and critical illnesses, and especially for treatment of complex cranio-maxillofacial tumors and deformities and their functional repair, complex temporomandibular joint disease, and critical craniofacial trauma. The directors of the departments of Pediatric Stomatology, Orthodontics and Oral Implantology of SSJTU are also the Chairmen of the national special committee on Pediatric Stomatology, Orthodontics and Oral Implantology. They launched a number of clinical frontier treatment technological revolutions and scientific research projects in these fields. No other institution in China undertakes this breadth and depth of complex care on this scale.
2. Representative faculty
SSJTU has one of the best teaching teams in China. In the field of Stomatology, the only two academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering are from SSJTU. The faculty of the discipline include three National High Level Personnel Training / Young Talent Training Scholars, the leader of the National Natural Innovation Group, two National Natural Outstanding Young People and two National Distinguished Young People. In addition, Professor Tonetti, editor-in-chief of the highly ranked “Journal of Clinical Periodontology”, is also our full-time professor.
Faculty members of SSJTU have served in influential national leadership roles, including as the chairman/vice chairman of the Ministry of Education of the Chinese Branch of the International Dental Implant Association, the Medical Committee of Smile Asia Foundation, the International College of Prosthodontics (ICP), the Asian Federation of Oral Anesthesiology, and the Chinese Branch of the International Vascular Union. SSJTU Professors have led the formulation of Chinese standards of diagnosis and treatment for oral diseases, such as "Chinese guidelines for prevention and treatment of dental caries" and "Chinese norms for pathological diagnosis of oral cancer".
3. Representative graduates
The School’s faculty and trainees have demonstrated compelling knowledge and influence, thereby promoting the progress of Stomatology. Many SSJTU alumni have profoundly impacted the discipline on a global level, including Zhou Laisheng (director of Department of Stomatology of Boston University), Li Yiming (distinguished professor, vice president and director of Dental Research Center of Loma Linda University, School of Dentistry), Chen Jinkun (tenured professor of Dental College of Tufts University), Liu Yuelian (director of Dental Implant and Prosthodontics Research Center, Affiliated StomatologicalHospital, University of Amsterdam / Free University, Netherlands), Guo Chuanbin (director of Peking University Hospital of Stomatology), and Hu QinGang (director of Nanjing Stomatological Hospital, Medical School of Nanjing University).SSJTU 's student training mode has been highly recognized by the Ministry of education of China. As a result, SSJTU has received the highest award regarding Chinese students' education and training, the National Teaching Achievement Award. Younger SSJTU scholars have also become young-leaders in related research fields. Their research results have been published in Nature, Advanced Materials, Advanced Science, Genome Biology, Journal of Dental Research and other journals. Some of them are already the youngest doctoral tutors in the field in China.
4. Representative achievements
Innovation fuels discovery at SSJTU. At present, SSJTU houses both the National Stomatological Center, the highest level of clinical medical practice in China, and the National Clinical Research Center for Oral Diseases, the highest level of translational research in China. Here, faculty members and graduate students strive to alleviate suffering caused by oral diseases. In the past five years, four National Key R & D Projects (Chief scientist), the largest research projects funded by the Chinese government, and 10 other National Key Research Projects, have been undertaken at SSJTU. SSJTU's oral cancer department has become the world's largest oral cancer treatment center. Functional restoration therapies after oral cancer surgery were awarded the China National Science and Technology Progress Award. Based on the world's most comprehensive oral cancer sample bank and bioinformatics database, the world's most advanced standardized PDX model of malignant melanoma was established. The structural basis of the recognition and modification of nucleosomes by MLL methyltransferase was analyzed, which was reported in a top international academic journal, Nature. Supported by the National Innovation Group Project, the prosthodontics team has established an interdisciplinary group and expanded the influence and impact of Stomatology by eliminating traditional barriers to collaboration across disciplines. In order to achieve high-quality regeneration of maxillofacial bone tissue and rapid osseointegration of dental implants, a variety of novel regeneration strategies were created from the aspects of structure / component modification of biomaterials, optimal combination of stem cells and active factors. The study on the directional delivery and differentiation of seed cells by using magnetically controlled composite growth factor cell sheet was published in Advanced Materials. A study on the synergistic effect of hollow tube 3D printing scaffold and bioactive ions on vascularized bone regeneration was proposed, and was published in Biomaterials. The department of oral and maxillofacial surgery and orthodontics has established a full digital joint diagnosis and treatment protocol of orthognathic orthodontics joints, and developed a precise technical system of temporomandibular joint rehabilitation. 3D printing combined with surface functional modification is used to realize personalized precise repair and tumor treatment requirements, published in Advanced Functional Materials. Design of a novel biomimetic polymer pegs double-layer scaffold for cartilage mechanics to regulate the repair of full-thickness joint defects has been published in Biomaterials. Development of 3D printing implant surface activation and functional modification technology, rapid and accurate repair of joint deformity and defect research results, received second prize at the National Science and Technology Progress Awards. The oral implant team was the first to report the stable effect of minimally invasive maxillary sinus augmentation combined with flapless implant placement, and was invited to report its findings at the European Conference on Osteosynthesis. Full-time professor Tonetti has proved, for the first time in the world, the stable and long-term effect of maxillary sinus lifting under extreme bone atrophy in maxillary posterior area, published in Journal of Clinical Periodontology.
5. Domestic & international influences of the discipline
SSJTU ranks 2nd in the 2021 China’s best discipline ranking by Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU). The discipline organizes a 25-session dental exhibition during DenTech China and the China International Dental Symposium in October every year. In 2020 and 2021, a total of approximately 900 exhibitors from 27 countries and regions participated, and close to 100,000 professional visitors from 35 countries and regions attended the exhibition. Meanwhile, more than 200 lectures were given by experts covering clinical technology and research in various disciplines. SSJTU has edited and published four academic journals, including Shanghai Journal of Stomatology, China Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Chinese Journal of Dental Materials and Devices and Frontiers of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine. All these journals provide an academic platform, which allow the researchers around the world to display their latest research findings. The discipline has also established cooperative relations with nearly 40 overseas universities or academic institutions, including Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Boston University School of Dental Medicine, Karolinska Institute Department of Dental Medicine, Osaka Dental University and Fukuoka Dental College.
