Effect of Periodontal Disease on Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASVD)

Hello! My name is Satvik and my Polygence project is on the connection between Periodontal Disease and Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease. I chose to work on this project because I wanted to find a way to bridge the gap between dental health and overall wellbeing. After my project is complete, I would like to continue research on various unexplored topics in the immunology field.
