He received is Ph.D from University of Tennessee in Microbiology. He received Excellence in Research from Science Alliance, University of Tennessee. He peer reviewd many scientific journals. He has worked on many NIH grants, currently he working on 'Streptococcus mutans Strain Susceptibility Differences to Host Defense Peptides' His current research intersts focused on transmission of specific genotypes of Streptococcus mutans (SM) one of the most researched bacteria associated with dental caries development, from mother to child in different populations. My recently completed R01 study looked at acquisition of SM in American Indian children from birth to three years of age. We conducted this study in partnership with the Lakota Sioux in Pine Ridge, South Dakota. We had a field team consisting of dental hygienists and research assistants on site who collected plaque samples from mothers, primary caregivers, and the children. In addition, a comprehensive approach to obtain dietary and behavioral data, as well as oral health (caries assessment) was done. By the time children reached 36 months of age, the caries prevalence in our cohort reached 82% - a devastating level. We found that mothers were low on Vitamin D and calcium. We also discovered 17 distinct genotypes of SM in this population. Analysis of associations across these variables, along with behavioral and education levels is ongoing. We are now positioned to study this cohort from age 5 of the children to age 9. We propose a more comprehensive behavioral analysis of the families and a comprehensive analysis of the oral microflora in these children by next generation sequencing approaches. We believe that carefully studying the development of the oral microflora in these children in combination with behavioral, dietary, and environmental variables will provide invaluable information to address how these oral health disparities develop and invaluable targets for prevention and treatment.
