The research program at Boston Children’s Hospital is the most prolific of any pediatric hospital in the world. The Craniofacial Program team conducts ongoing research in Boston Children’s laboratories while collaborating with scientists at Boston’s universities and colleges, other biomedical facilities and fellow leading medical centers. In particular, the physicians and research partners in our Craniofacial Program are committed to:

  • Shaping widespread understanding of abnormalities of the head and facial bones
  • Improving the diagnosis and treatment of craniofacial conditions in children
  • Understanding how and why craniofacial conditions occur and what role genetics play in the development of certain abnormalities
  • Helping children with conditions of the head and face lead healthy and fulfilling lives

Some of our current and ongoing research projects include the study of:

  • Outcomes data from craniofacial surgery, including patients with craniosynostosis and encephaloceles
  • Study of obstructive sleep apnea in patients with craniofacial anomalies
  • Hemifacial microsomia
  • Diagnosis and outcomes in patients with Robin sequence
  • Management of craniofacial anomalies
  • Apert syndrome

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
