Dr Lim began her research journey back when she was an endodontic resident where she pursued the learning of pulp histological techniques with the renown Dr Domenico Ricucci. Following the successful defense of her Master’s thesis on the histology of dental pulps indicated for vital pulp therapy, she persisted in her interest in the field of pulp biology. She was awarded the Oral Health ACP Budding Clinician Researcher Award to work with Professor David Becker on the study of a gap junction protein, connexin 43, in dental pulps. This collaboration evolved into her pursuing her PhD with Professor Becker, while she maintains part-time clinical practice in endodontics. Her current doctorate research allows her to delve into the basic science and translational aspects of modulating connexin 43 in the treatment of pulpitis (dental pulp inflammation). Her research skillset includes clinical trials, wet-bench lab research and animal model studies (rodent/porcine).
