Development of a Compromised Maxillofacial Wound Healing Model for Bone Graft Evaluation
Dr. Young’s research interest includes the design of materials for the promotion of bone regeneration in the craniomaxillofacial complex. He has broad experience in the fields of biomaterials, growth factor delivery, in vivo models, and characterization of bone and neovascularization. As an oral & maxillofacial surgeon with experience treating traumatic defects and pathology, Dr. Young understands the unique challenges associated with the reconstruction of complex maxillofacial wounds. By designing a novel preclinical model of compromised wound healing, Drs. Young and Kasper hope to better understand the mechanisms which prevent successful bone grafting, and use these insights to design better therapies in the future.
