{She believed she could, so she did}

Craniofacial bones-patOur lab is primarily focused on three key areas. The first one is on exploring the role of extracellular matrix proteins (mainly collagen and proteoglycans) in bone and dentin maintenance and regeneration.  Another area of interest is on collagen biomodification via natural compounds for the purpose of disease modulation that affect mineralized tissues (such as caries, dentin erosion, periodontal disease, osteoporosis and diabetes). And the last area is on development of collagen-based and organic polymer scaffolds for craniofacial regeneration.
