- High-quality observational clinical studies

- Patient-related outcome measures and patients’ informational needs

- Establishment of large tissue collection (blood, saliva and DNA) relevant to Oral Diseases


My research has focussed on: 

DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING OF DIAGNOSTICS AND THERAPEUTICS

- New therapeutics for salivary gland dysfunction (xerostomia) associated with rheumatic disease and cancer therapy

- Novel non-invasive point-of-care diagnostics for oral cancer and pre-cancer: 

- Genetic predisposition to develop toxicity from anti-resorptive medications: 

- Repurposing of therapies for chemoprevention of oral cancer and management of complications of cancer therapy:

OBSERVATIONAL STUDIES
