Giuseppe Intini is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Periodontics and Preventive Dentistry and at the Center for Craniofacial Regeneration (CCR). Dr. Intini earned a degree in 1995 from the University of L'Aquila, Italy. In 2000, he received a Master's degree in Oral Sciences, and in 2007 he received his PhD in Oral Biology and a certificate in clinical Periodontolgy from the Univeristy at Buffalo. From 2007 to 2012 he has been a postdoctoral felllow of Developmental Biology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine and from 2012 to 2018 he has been an Assistant Professor of Oral Medicine, Infection and Immunity at the Harvard Schhol of Denal Medicine and a Principal Faculty member of the Harvard Stem Cell Institute. He also is a Diplomate of the the American Board of Periodontology.
Dr. Intini's current research focuses on the biology of the skeletal and periodontal stem cells. The Intini lab studies the molecular mechanisms that control the "stemness" of these stem cells, their contribution to tissue repair and regeneration, and thier role in development of certain bone and periodontal diseases. Additional projects at the Intini lab focus on the role of cancer stem cells in development, maintenance, and metastasis of osteosarcoma.
