Research Interest

Dr. Bencharit is a protein structural biologist specializing in protein X-ray crystallography. He has his research interests in structural biology and its applications to human diseases in particular the role of signaling proteins involved in vessel and bone development. He is also interested in the clinical applications of salivary and tissue proteomics using advanced mass spectrometry. His main laboratory goals include (1) structural and functional studies of cerebral cavernous malformation (CCM), a genetic disorder resulting in vascular defects in the brain causing hemorrhagic stroke (2) salivary proteomic analysis and biomarker discovery for diabetes and HIV-related diseases, and (3) biology of bone regeneration and implant dentistry.
