Research Interests
Signal transduction involved in periodontal/peri-implant wound healing.
Treatment Outcome

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.
