Summary

Dr. Beiraghi is Professor and Head of the Division of Pediatric Dentistry at the University of Minnesota, School of Dentistry and has been a Staff member of craniofacial programs for over 25 years at UNMC/BTNRH and UMN. She was the Director of the IADR/AADR Craniofacial Biology Section as well as a member of the Society of Craniofacial Genetics and ASHG. She has been trained as NIH/NIDCR Fellow at Indiana University School of Medicine, both in medical and molecular genetics. Her primary research focus is in the area of craniofacial anomalies; specifically she is currently working on genotype-phenotype correlation and underlying molecular mechanisms. This includes congenital craniofacial syndromes and degenerative musculoskeletal defects, both of which may involve the oral cavity, face, and temporomandibular joint. She is interested in signaling pathway variations during skeletogenesis and growth, including abnormalities in the synthesis and metabolism of collagen and other connective tissue proteins.
