    Research Interest:
    Our lab is interested in the molecular biology aspect of bone biology and tooth movement. Tooth movement is a complicated process resulting from the signaling cascade from periodontal ligament relaying to osteoclast/blast which requires accurate spatial-temporal factors. Our lab's research aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of this process. Another ongoing project is involved a research in molecular mechanisms of bone biology using animal models and cell cultures.

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: 8-10

    Qualifications of a Student:
    Senior standing, biology major
    Experiences in certain basic laboratory technics in molecular biology i.e. western blot, PCR.
