Signal transduction involved in periodontal/peri-implant wound
Descriptive of Research
Currently, my primary research interest is to investigate the
possible mechanisms involved in delayed type mucosal wound healing.
I collaborate with Oral Biology Section and Comprehensive Wound
Center at OSU. We conduct both clinical and basic science research.
I am also conducting several clinical research projects related to
treatment outcome following implant placement surgery. We
investigate early healing process at periodontal/peri-implant
tissues. We combine clinical documentation with various molecular
biology methods to evaluate different phases of healing.
