I am now doing first year PhD in Dentistry at the University College London and my research project is on a drug side effect causing jaw bone death (bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis of the jaw). A similar disease also occurred in Victorian times among match workers exposed to phosphorus vapour. In this blog, I will share my views regarding the past and present aspects of the disease. I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

This blog is set up in celebration of UCL Research Frontiers since 1826, to recognise and celebrate the fact that curiosity-driven discovery and analysis has been a feature of UCL since its foundation.

My project is supported with the kind sponsorship from the UCL Grand Challenge Studentships in Biomedicine.
