Research group(s)

Research interests

Based on the clinic research our research group focuses on regeneration of oral tissues. This includes the oral bone, the gingiva, the peridontal ligament and the dental pulp. Here we focus our research on molecular and cellular techniques and evaluate the mechanisms underlying regeneration and the response to biologicals, biomaterials and pharmaceuticals. New strategies are revealed with preclinical and clinical approaches to develop new therapeutic dental treatments. 

Other interests: Supervision, mentoring and coaching

Techniques, methods & infrastructure

Cell culture (e.g.: fibroblasts from the gingiva and the periodontal ligament, dental pulp-derived cells, osteogenic cells, endothelial cells, and cell lines), spheroid cultures, tooth slice organ cultures, osteoblastogenesis assays, osteoclastogenesis assays, qPCR, ELISA, western blot, zymography, enzyme activity assays, immunohistochemistry, evaluation of the release kinetic of biomaterials.
