Host response, periodontitis, pathobionts
Her research interests focus on the pathogenesis of periodontal disease with a focus on the host response. This response is greatly influenced by both genetic factors and different microorganisms. Specifically, she has focused on the role of pathogen recognition receptors and sensors (TLR, NLR, IFI16, AIM2) and novel pathobionts (E. saphenum, F. alocis, Synergistetes) in the host response.
