As a cellular microbiologist, Shafikhani’s research approach is to apply the knowledge gained from studying pathogens toward advancing understanding of host cellular processes. The primary focus of his lab is to determine the virulence mechanisms that mediate Pseudomonas aeruginosa pathogenesis in the context of wound infection, to determine the eukaryotic host responses that are intended to control Pseudomonas aeruginosa wound infections; and to employ bacterial toxins as molecular tools to dissect important mammalian cellular processes such as cytokinesis, apoptotic program cell death and apoptotic compensatory proliferation signaling. 

 

 

UIC is a Leader in Regenerative Sciences Research

Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

We are leading investigations into how materials interact with living tissues, and the building of tissue replacements for the growth of cells/tissues to replace lost tissues. The Center for Wound Healing and Tissue Regeneration (CWHTR) is a unique community of scientists and clinicians devoted to the study of injury, wound healing, and regeneration. The Laboratory of Applied Dental Biomaterials and Interfaces is a NIH funded center studying the properties of the tooth in order to develop reparative/regenerative biomaterials to replace lost tooth structure.

 

Research at the UIC College of Dentistry

Our investigators lead cutting-edge research to discover and translate new knowledge at the boundaries of science, transforming oral health care practice, social systems and related technologies for the benefit of individuals, families and communities.

 Craniofacial Pathobiology
Working to improve treatment of oral cancer, caries, peridontal and other oral diseases. 

Regenerative Science
Moving beyond tissue replacement, using materials to enable our bodies to regenerate damaged and failing tissues.

Clinical, Translational & Community
Leading transformative studies to improve oral health outcomes both in the clinic and the community.
