share this article

We selected renowned clinicians and asked them to answer five research related questions, sharing their points of view with fellow clinicians. 

Prof. Giuseppe Romito | Brazil

Which famous researcher would you like to meet?
Prof. Giuseppe Romito: Niklaus Lang and Jan Lindhe to discuss their opinions about future perspectives in periodontology and implantology.

What was your first research about?
Prof. Giuseppe Romito: Relationship of subgingival and salivary microbiota with gingival overgrowth in heart transplant patients following cyclosporin A.

A moment in your research career that made a big impression on you?
Prof. Giuseppe Romito: The moment of my research career that struck me most was when I understood very clearly that the most important thing is not only the results of a given research, but the entire investigative process that is necessary to achieve quality research. In addition, as a mentor, it is fundamental that I conduct the scientific process in such a way that, in the end, the human product is a researcher capable of critically evaluating his own research and raising new hypotheses for the advancement of knowledge in a certain area of knowledge.

If you were a researcher in another area, what idea would you develop?
Prof. Giuseppe Romito: Tissue engineering with stem cells to improve the patient's ability to, for example, go back to walking!

A researcher should always…
Prof. Giuseppe Romito: Be a restless and open-minded person who takes the initiative to explore new paths; be persevering and able to learn from his or her mistakes; learn to work as a team and mentor students to be better, dedicated people; and always be especially enthusiastic about the academic area.
