Second area of interest of my laboratory is signaling pathways regulating the initial stages of tooth formation. Currently we are focusing on the possibility of engineering tooth crowns. Towards this goal, experiments are in progress to examine the multiple differentiation potentials of dental pulp.
Lab Rotation Projects
Students with new and innovative ideas about craniofacial and tooth development are more than welcome to participate in rotation project in the laboratory. In addition the students can participate in the ongoing projects in the lab.
The current research projects in the laboratory are:
1. Understanding the mechanisms regulating proper outgrowth and morphogenesis of mandibular processes.
2. Understanding the differentiation potentials of dental pulp and its application towards tissue engineering.
