Clinical and Research Interests

Dr. Burke’s clinical and research interests include the pathophysiology of skeletal diseases, such as fibro-osseous and giant cell lesions, osteonecrosis of the jaws and odontogenic tumors.  Her current research focuses on the molecular and genetic understanding of benign craniofacial fibro-osseous lesions.  She also helped to create the first Fibrous Dysplasia/McCune-Albright Syndrome Patient Registry.
