Research Focus

Regenerative Medicine & Biomechanics

Area of Research

Facial and cranial malformations, especially cleft lips, jaws and palate:

  • Cleft Lip and Palate treatment, in particular approaches to reduce the burden of care, comprising the combined lip and palate repair and machine learning strategies.
  • Regenerative medicine strategies by use of scaffolds and cellular components, including from human umbilical cord.
  • Advancement of surgical therapies, namely related to precision surgical anatomy, microcirculation and microsurgery.
