About our research

Cleft lip and palate are among the most common congenital malformations with an overall incidence of around 1 in 700 individuals. Our aim is to reduce the human burden associated with cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial problems, through creation of a platform to rapidly develop, co-ordinate, support, and undertake a broad range of applied research.

Researchers within this area have a long history of involvement in randomised trials for complex orthodontic care.
