The Salivary Bioscience Laboratory (UNL SBL)
The mission of the UNL Salivary Bioscience Laboratory (SBL) is to facilitate the integration of salivary biomarkers into academic research and bring salivary bioscience to elite athletes.
We strive to collaborate with researchers from a variety of academic disciplines, including the social, behavioral, educational, and health sciences, in their pursuits to incorporate salivary biomarkers into scholarly work. Uniquely located in Memorial Stadium at UNL, the SBL, a partnership between the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior (CB3) and Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory (NAPL), also explores the role of salivary biomarkers in understanding the performance of collegiate student-athletes.
The SBL offers saliva assay services, plus sample storage, training in saliva collection, and consultation on research design, IRB protocols, and grant writing in the salivary biosciences.
