Isabelle Miletich, PhD
Principal Investigator, Lecturer in Craniofacial Development and Stem Cell Biology
Isabelle qualified as a dentist from the University of Bordeaux, France and obtained her PhD from the University of Paris. She underwent postdoctoral training in Professor Paul Sharpe’s lab and subsequently joined King's College London Faculty as a lecturer. Isabelle’s early research interests lay in the study of normal and abnormal development of teeth and salivary glands. Her current research interest focuses on the regeneration of salivary gland tissue.
Sheyla Bologna, DDS, PhD
Sheyla is a dentist, who obtained a PhD in Health Science from the University of São Paulo under the supervision of Prof Silvia Lourenço. She joined the Miletich Lab in May 2015. Sheyla is interested in the characterisation of salivary gland progenitor cells.
Riddhi Sharma, BDS
Riddhi obtained her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the Oxford Dental College in Bengalore, India. She then worked for three years as a dentist in both private and hospital practices before moving to London, where she is currently unertaking an MSc in Regenerative Dentistry. Her MSc research project focuses on the identification of signalling mechanisms involved in the activation of stem cells during salivary gland regeneration.
Intercalated BSc Student
Before joining the Miletich Lab, Michael spent two years studying Medicine at King's College London during which time he undertook projects on the pathogenesis of osteoporosis and calcium sensitisation and contraction mechanisms in smooth muscle. Michael is currently studying towards an intercalated BSc in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences. Michael is interested in identifying progenitor cells and signalling pathways involved in the regeneration of adult salivary and lacrimal gland tissue.
