    You could try doing a search on medline and find who is doing research in novel caries prevention such as vaccination.

    But if you are a dental school, why not try the faculty where you attend?

    You might also want to look into the international dental forum for more help.

    If the "mail to the many universities" you sent is as cryptic as your original post the lack of response is of little wonder especially since, apparently, the faculty at your school have been equally unimpressed.
