Fábio explores mechanisms linking oral and systemic diseases using approaches, from cell culture to clinical trials and population-based registries. Collectively, his studies moved the oral inflammation field into the acknowledgement of the synergy and accumulation of multiple causes (from local and systemic molecular factors to structural determinants).
His interest lies in exploring why people develop different phenotypes of oral inflammation. His master´s focused on tissue healing, plus clinical training in treating people with diabetes. His Ph.D. investigated common pathways of Crohn´s disease and periodontitis, including a stay at Prof. Richard Darveau´s microbiology laboratory (University of Washington).
He collaborated in studies involving birth cohorts and spent a year at the Australian Research Centre for Population Oral Health, University of Adelaide, to study common causes of systemic and oral inflammation.
Fábio held positions of trust, such as Head of Department, vice-president of an ethics committee, and executive and research steering committee member in Brazil, Denmark and Singapore. He has published over 90 articles and 4 book chapters, deposited patents, supervised over 30 masters and Ph.D. students, and secured multiple research grants. According to ResearchGate, Fabio is among the top 4% in dentistry and periodontology.
Fábio's soft skills training encompasses leadership and communication.
