Baker Lab Team

The Baker lab's current interests concern the welfare of people who are unable to produce adequate saliva either due to genetics, autoimmunity, or side effects from treatments.  A comprehensive approach to hyposalivation involves not just treatment, but also preventative aspects, which are both warranted and viable.  As such, our lab currently works in the following areas:

  • Salivary gland regeneration
  • Resolution of inflammation
  • Salivary gland tight junctions
  • Effects of radiation treatment on salivary gland function
  • Saliva substitutes
