Our laboratory focuses on Translational Studies and Stem Cell-based Regenerative Medicine (SCRM) aiming to transfer the Basic Bench Results to Clinical Science Research. Ongoing projects include: cell-based gene therapy to regenerate and repair lost tissues in oral and craniofacial region; understanding the mechanisms and developing therapeutic strategies for treating dental disorders associated with systemic diseases; and application of nano-materials together with transcription factors, cytokinies, non-coding RNAs and hormones to facilitate tissue engineering and regeneration.
