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 Clinical Research Program at Massachusetts General Hospital leverages surgical innovations, clinical practices and technological developments to improve diagnosis and treatment in plastic surgery. Our research in craniofacial surgery and breast reduction address the most common problems in plastic surgery involving pediatric and adult patients.
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.
