    Collapse overview
    Dr. Goldberg received his B.S. in Metallurgical Engineering from Drexel University, then his M.S. in Metallurgical Engineering and Ph.D. in Metallurgical Engineering and Dental Materials, both from the University of Michigan. The latter was a combined degree program between the School of Engineering and the School of Dentistry. Dr. Goldberg has been at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine for over 25 years. He has held his primary academic appointment in clinical departments where he has successfully integrated basic materials science into clinical teaching and research. He has also been active at the UConn School of Engineering where he has maintained funded research collaborations for much of the past 25 years and has served on the Advisory Committee to the Institute of Materials Science for 10 years. He is co-director of the U.S. Department of Education GAANN graduate training program in "Biomaterials for Tissue Engineering" through the School of Engineering. Dr. Goldberg has had numerous committee memberships and chairmanships at the University. He served on the Board of Directors of the University of Connecticut Health Center for eight years.

    Dr. Goldberg has published over 65 articles, 100 abstracts and four book chapters. He lectures to professional groups, has served on NIH Study Sections, reviews for several professional journals and was twice president of the Dental Materials Group of the American Association for Dental Research.

    Dr. Goldberg’s research interests focus on studies of structure-property relationships, the development of new dental materials and more recently biomaterial-cell interactions. The work on new dental materials has involved titanium alloys for orthodontic application, fiber-reinforced composites (FRC) for various dental clinical applications, biocatalyzed mineralization and use of high performance polyphenylene polymers in orthodontics.

    Dr. Goldberg’s more recent work in the area of tissue engineering is a collaboration with Drs. Liisa Kuhn, David Rowe and others. These programs are studying how engineered scaffolds can be designed to influence cell behavior. In particular, lineage-specific green fluorescent proteins (GFP) are used to quantify cell differentiation on biomaterials.
