The OIID department is happy to congratulate Dr. Huizhi Wang for his success in obtaining R01 grant funding from NIDCR.  The new grant entitled, "SGK1 and the control of periodontal inflammation", will support Wang lab research aimed at understanding molecular signals regulating inflammation that leads to periodontal disease.

Dr. Wang noted the translational potential of this project saying, "This support will allow us to do more research on the therapeutic potential of anti-inflammatory kinases for the control of periodontitis, and possibly other systemic conditions associated with periodontal infection "
