Research Interests

Dr. Sroussi's research interests include the oxidative regulation of inflammation and wound healing. Specifically, Dr Sroussi studies the regulation of leukocyte migration and activation by S100 proteins. Dr. Sroussi's other research interests include auto-immune and infectious diseases of the mouth; oral cancer and early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous lesions and oral manifestations of HIV.
