Effect of maternal high glycemic index diets on offspring metabolic phenotype

We are uncovering fascinating effects of different sugars (glucose, fructose, sucrose and isomaltulose) on development of embryos and offspring.  High glucose fed mice are sign more...

Embryonic stem cells

Embryonic stem (ES) cells have the potential to differentiate into any cell type of the developing embryo and adult. For this reason they have proved invaluable in understanding the more...

Harmful or beneficial aspects of oral facial tissue and environment to the cardiac regeneration: Periodontitis may worsen the outcome of cardiac function after injury whilst the orofacial stem cells may augment their regenerative capacity.

A rodent model of myocardial injury will be used to investigate cardiac function. We will investigate the detrimental effect of a chronic inflammatory disease (periodontitis) on car more...
