Craniofacial Group: FaceValue

FaceValue is a research team of clinicians and engineers based at UCL GOS Institute of Child Health & Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Our overall objective is to develop novel techniques and devices to improve outcome and safety of craniofacial surgery for children born with conditions affecting their head and/or face.

We focus on:

  • craniofacial morphology by combining 3D imaging techniques and mathematical modelling;
  • craniofacial biomechanics to characterise the bone and skin response to surgical treatments;
  • device design to deliver improved minimally invasive treatments.
