Roles on external bodies
Editorial Board Member:
My research interests include microbiology of periodontal diseases, host-pathogen interactions, Toll-Like Receptors signalling, immunopathogenesis of chronic inflammation and mechanisms involved in the resolution of inflammatory response (endotoxin tolerance). I am particularly interested in the chemical composition of Porphyromonas gingivalis 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 my research interest are molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for tissue injury during inflammation, biomarkers of periodontal disease progression, personalised, point-of-care periodontal therapy and identification of therapeutic targets for resolution of inflammation.
