Molecular Physiology and Therapeutics Branch

Indu Ambudkar, Chief

Biological Science ImageThe Molecular Physiology and Therapeutics Branch pursues a comprehensive bench-to-bedside program to understand the molecular basis of salivary gland function and dysfunction and to develop strategies for the diagnosis, prevention, and management of salivary gland diseases. Clinical and translational studies focus on mechanisms of, and therapies for, salivary gland dysfunction caused by head and neck irradiation and diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome. The Branch will develop novel clinical strategies to restore salivary secretion that will include viral based gene transfer, pharmacological and other molecular tools.
