The University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry prides itself in a rich leadership tradition in dental research and education. In the mid-20th century, the College boasted of brilliant teachers and educators such as Drs. E. Lloyd Du Brul, Harry Sicher, Frederick B. Noyes, Isaac Schour, Joseph-Peter Weinmann, and Allan G. Brodie Sr. Their textbooks, such as Dr. Sicher’s and Dr. DuBrul’s Oral Anatomy, Dr. Sicher’s and Dr. Weinmann’s Bone and Bones, and Dr. Noyes’s Oral Histology and Embriology became classics and provided the basic oral biology education for generations of dentists.
Today at the College, the Department of Oral Biology continues in that great research and education tradition. Among its teacher/researchers are several recognized as world leaders.
