We are applying molecular microbiology to study surface structures, virulence factors and post translational modifications of components of bacteria (with emphasis on Porphyromonas gingivalis) that are associated with periodontal disease.

Furthermore, functional investigation into host-bacterial interactions via the microbiome and bacterial isolates, through genes and genomes, are being applied to elucidate the mechanisms of periodontal disease.
