The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery conducts a unique portfolio of research, including clinical trials and laboratory research, to improve patient safety and develop sophisticated new surgical techniques and products.
Advances in clinical treatment of congenital craniofacial malformations require improved understanding of the developmental genetic basis of facial morphogenesis. Our goal in the Craniofacial Developmental Biology Laboratory is to investigate fundamental genetic regulation of facial development, with a focus on translating basic science discoveries to clinical advances. We perform research on palate development and neural crest cell biology.
The Plastic Surgery Research Laboratory conducts investigations into tissue engineering of cartilage, mechanisms of neural injury and regeneration, ischemia/reperfusion injury, and transplantation of vascularized limb tissues.
