The next lecture in this year’s Dental Physical Sciences Unit Research Seminar Series will be held on Wed 7th March starting at 4:00 pm. This will take place in the Sizer Lecture, Bancroft Building, QMUL, and is entitled “In and out with, and the ins and outs of, enamel matrix protein. The calcium control of enamel formation”. Our speaker is Dr Rodrigo S. Lacruz, Assistant Professor, at the Dept. of Basic Science and Craniofacial Biology New York University College of Dentistry and Sackler Institute NYU School of Medicine.

His main research focus is to identify processes affecting the development and mineralization of dental enamel. Dr Lacruz's research combines molecular biology, physiology, confocal and electron microscopy, genetics and morphology to identify key growth processes and pathways focusing largely on the intracellular environment of enamel cells.
