DDS, PhD

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow

Nationality: Japanese

Dr. Kosaku Sawada was a recently graduated Oral Maxillo Facial Surgeon working in the cell biology laboratory. His main research interests have been 2 fold. He continues his work with Professor Reinhard Gruber involving bone conditioned medium and recently has evaluated the effects of either radiation therapy and antiseptic solutions on in vitro bone survival, morphology and release of growth factors.
