Moritz Kebschull studied Dentistry at the University of Muenster in Germany. For his doctoral work, he studied the role of endothelial cells in mucosal inflammation using whole-genome technology.
In parallel, Moritz started clinical training as a periodontist. After three years in a specialized private practice, Moritz joined the Division of Periodontics, Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, as a postdoctoral fellow with Professor Panos Papapanou, to work on the interactions of periodontal and systemic diseases, and to decipher the pathophysiology of different forms of periodontal disease using high-throughput methodology.
In 2009, Moritz joined the Department of Periodontology, Operative and Preventive Dentistry at the University of Bonn. Here, in the department of Professor Soren Jepsen, Moritz focused on the relationship of periodontal infections and atherosclerosis, as well as on the current classification of periodontal diseases. This work won several awards, including the IADR Sigmund S. Socransky Young Investigator Award, the IADR William Gies Award, and the Miller Prize, the highest scientific award in German dentistry.
Moritz was appointed Chair of Restorative Dentistry in September 2018.
