Thesis Title

Cooperativity of Oral Microbes in Evading Neutrophil Mediated Killing

Research Publications Overview

Research Description

My research aims to understand pathogen-phagocyte relationships, as well as cooperative mechanisms that oral bacteria employ to avoid being killed by professional phagocytes such as neutrophils. The overall goal of this research is to help improve the ability to control periodontal inflammation.
