General Information

Title:Associate investigator, PHD supervisor

Discipline area:Microbiome, Cleft palate, Craniofacial defect


Research Profiles:

1. Oral microbiome and salivary peptidome

2. Craniofacial Development and Cleft Lip with/without Cleft Palate

Research Expertise

Area of Research Expertise:

1. Oral microbiome/salivary peptidome on oral diseases

2. Molecular and cellular biology on craniofacial development 

Research Theme:

1. Investigatedsalivary peptidome and microbiome profiles in oral cavity. Demonstrated evident salivary dysbiosis and different ecotypes in IBD communities and provided an option for identifying at-risk populations.

2. Studied the mechanism of craniofacial development and conducted whole-exome sequencing in hereditary families affected with non-syndromic CL/P, and identified novelmutations which is potentiallycausative for the disease.
