Over 25 years of research Dr. Glogauer has focused on the innate immune system and white blood cells called neutrophils. In addition to identifying a key novel neutrophil subset, he has used the oral cavity as a key site for assessing their role in health and disease. From this research he has developed a new screening test for periodontal diseases that will be on the market soon and a blood test that allows for the identification of patients at risk of infection during their cancer therapy. He will outline how this fundamental research will make a real difference to patients in fields of dentistry and cancer care.
