http://www.scholars.ufl.edu/naveen-allin.aspx

Naveen Allin, currently a DMD student in the UF Class of 2018, majored Food Science in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at UF.  He received his Associate of Arts degree in Social Sciences at Santa Fe College in spring 2010. He has been working with Dr. Luciana Shaddox since June 2011, assisting in clinical treatment and data analysis. In September 2012, Naveen was accepted into The University Scholars Program sponsored by the Center for Undergraduate Research. He helped to work on a study looking at the changes in cytokines levels in African-American children diagnosed with a rare form of gum disease (localized aggressive periodontitis) during the course of periodontal treatment. His contributions led to a peer-reviewed publication and a poster presentation at an international conference. Recently Naveen completed a second project looking at the relationship between baseline cytokine levels and improvements in clinical parameters in African-American with localized aggressive periodontitis following periodontal treatment.

His hobbies include playing a variety of instruments and sports, fiction writing, traveling and studies spiritual literature. His future plan is to pursue a DMD degree.
