Research interests

I'm interested in the field of stem cell research. I'm also interested in osteogenic differentiation for treatment of skeletal and maxillofacial defects, In addition I'm interested in the effect of cell signaling pathways on osteogenisis.

My research projects aims mainly towards the enhancement of repair of large skeletal defects associated with chronic diseases. Examples of these diseases will be diabetis and osteoporosis.These diseases keep large bone defects from healing properly . Using regenerative medicine to enhance the healing of such defects can improve the quality if life of such patients.
