Reconstructive and Plastic Surgery

Research

Scientists at Johns Hopkins Children's Center are performing groundbreaking research into the environmental and genetic causes of cleft lip and palate and other craniofacial disorders.  Our researchers are also studying ways to improve nerve regeneration. 

Below is a list of selected publications from our Genetic Epidemiology of Oral Clefts group and our peripheral nerve researchers.
