The Naveh lab is studying the structure – function relations in the periodontal ligament (PDL) in particular and in ligaments in general.

Our research is an interdesciplinary combination of powerful imaging tools, 3D image processing together with molecular biology and a translational approach. We aim to lead to new paths in ligament and bone regeneration therapies as well as new approaches to generate controlled and predicted tooth movement.
