About this book

This book provides the first comprehensive overview of the emerging field of interdisciplinary salivary bioscience. It serves as a foundational reference guide to the collection, analysis, and interpretation of salivary data, as well as its myriad applications in medicine, surveillance and public health. The ease and non-invasive nature of saliva collection makes it highly useful in diverse fields such as pediatrics, dentistry, neuroscience, psychology, animal welfare and precision medicine. This book introduces students and scientists alike to the vast potential of salivary bioscience in both research and practice.

About the editors

Douglas A. Granger, Ph.D., is engaged in multi-institution research focused on the discovery, measurement, and application of analytes (e.g., enzymes, hormones, antibodies, chemicals, elements, cytokines) in saliva. He is a Chancellor’s Professor at UC Irvine,and holds adjunct faculty positions at Johns Hopkins University and University of Nebraska. His studies have been instrumental in the conceptualization and analysis of biosocial relationships involving child well-being, parent-child and family relationships, as well as how these biosocial links moderate and mediate the effects of adversity and stress on health and development.

Marcus K. Taylor, Ph.D., is a Faculty Affiliate at UC Irvine and a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. He previously held faculty positions at Duke University and San Diego State University. His program of research focuses on stress physiology in extreme environments, blast exposure, and gene-environment interactions. His recent work appears in Journal of Special Operations Medicine, Psychoneuroendocrinology, and Psychiatry Research.
