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.

Approved Research Projects

  • Burden Reduced Cleft Care and Healing, The Botnar Research Centre for Child Health (www.brc.ch), Multi-Investigator Project 2020-2025: Mueller AA, Solenthaler B, Gross M, Reddy GS, Brudnicki A
  • Learning-based 3D Infant Face and Head Model for Medical Application, Swiss National Science Foundation 2022-2025; Mueller AA, Solenthaler B, Gross M
