Research Interest

Microbiology of periodontal diseases, host-pathogen interactions, Toll-like receptors signalling, immunopathogenesis of chronic inflammation and mechanisms involved in the resolution of inflammatory response.
particularly interested in the chemical composition of Porphyromonasgingivalis LPS, with regards to its lipid-A structure and sialylation, and in consequences these changes have on the host’s immune response. Other areas of research interests are molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for tissue injury during inflammation, identification of therapeutic targets for resolution of inflammation and oral-systemic health connection.
