The Miron research group focuses on tissue regeneration of both soft and hard tissues found in the intra-oral cavity. Tissue engineering strategies include the regeneration of bone, periodontal ligament, gingiva and cementum by means of bioactive growth factors, bone grafting materials, soft tissue regenerative agents, platelet concentrates, novel barrier membranes and dental implants. The scope of these investigations ranges from in vitro molecular biology to pre-clinical animal studies up to human clinical trials.
