 Research Experiences / Interests

The major purpose of Oral and dental research is to obtain a better understanding of molecular mechanisms operative in the development, normal functioning and the repair of orofacial tissues.  I am particularly interested in genetic changes which can affect the function or expression of proliferation and differentiation associated genes in early and premalignant stages of oral neoplasia (those preceding salivary gland tumors, squamous cell carcinoma and odontogenic tumors). Most of my recent research work is focused in detecting the role of different oncogenes/proteins in oral neoplasia, its distant metastasis and odontogenic and fibro-osseous lesions of the jaws. In addition, have also focused on clinico-pathologic correlations, clinical case studies and epidemiology of various orofacial lesions like salivary gland tumours, odontogenic cysts and tumours.
