Centre for Craniofacial & Regenerative Biology

Our research goes beyond the mouth. If we understand how the entire face and head forms, we can repair damage and regenerate cells. If we unravel the causes of diseases, we can treat patients successfully. If we solve these problems, our discoveries will improve health worldwide. 

Our team of more than 100 researchers is driven by a diverse range of interests – from tissue engineering to techniques that have the potential to restore hearing loss.

Working together, we take our research beyond the lab with clinical trials, screenings to spot abnormalities earlier, and information for parents of children with birth defects.

Through sharing our discoveries with students, we show them how we are moving the field forward and how they themselves can make new discoveries as researchers. As the next generation of clinicians, they will be in the position to apply the new scientific approaches into practice and use our treatments to cure disease.

Head of Centre: Professor Andrea Streit

"A solid understanding of genetics and developmental biology is vital in our field. To build the skills of future generations of clinicians, we’re making sure our research has a strong impact on our teaching. Our discoveries lead to new tools and techniques, and dentists need to be clued up on the latest technologies to be able to keep their patients informed."
