  • John B. Mulliken, M.D., received his medical degree from Columbia University, College of Physicians & Surgeons in 1964. Following his surgical residency and a research fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Mulliken served in the U.S. Army in Korea and at Ft. Devens, Massachusetts. After military service, Dr. Mulliken completed his residency in plastic surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and returned to Boston. Dr. Mulliken is a Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Senior Associate in Surgery at Children's Hospital Boston. He is co-director of the Vascular Anomalies Center and Director of the Craniofacial Centre and the Cleft Lip and Palate Program. He also holds an appointment at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Mulliken is the co-founder and past president of the International Society for the Study of Vascular Anomalies. In 1998, he received an honorary degree from Université catholique de Louvain, Brussels. Dr. Mulliken is the author of 460 original scientific articles; 56 chapters; and two books, the most recent is Vascular Anomalies: Hemangiomas and Malformations, co-edited with P.E. Burrows and S.J. Fishman (Oxford University Press. 2013, 1100 pgs). Dr. Mulliken's major clinical interests are cleft lip/palate, vascular anomalies and craniofacial anomalies. His basic research focuses on molecular causes of craniofacial and vascular anomalies and his clinical research concentrates on long-term outcomes following cleft lip/palate repair. Dr. Mulliken developed the internationally accepted classification system for vascular anomalies, and a one-stage repair of bilateral cleft lip and nasal deformity. Dr. Mulliken is considered one of the world's foremost experts in vascular anomalies and a master in repair of cleft lip. He is frequently invited to lecture around the globe and welcomes visiting scholars and physicians who share his interests.
