Title:Associate investigator, PHD supervisor
Discipline area:Microbiome, Cleft palate, Craniofacial defect
1. Oral microbiome and salivary peptidome
2. Craniofacial Development and Cleft Lip with/without Cleft Palate
Area of Research Expertise:
1. Oral microbiome/salivary peptidome on oral diseases
2. Molecular and cellular biology on craniofacial development
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.
