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.
The Ott Laboratory in the Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Surgery is working to develop new tissue engineering strategies for regenerating whole organs and organ grafts as an alternative to donor transplantation.
The Plastic Surgery Clinical Research Program leverages surgical innovations, clinical practices and technological developments to improve diagnosis and treatment in plastic surgery.
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.
Transforming Medicine Through Innovation
Research at Massachusetts General Hospital integrates the full spectrum of "bench to bedside" discovery. Laboratory scientists work collaboratively with clinicians to make discoveries and turn them into treatments, diagnostics and devices that improve our quality of life.
