Craniofacial supports research with the assistance of grants and donations from various institutions, businesses and individuals.
Some of the works funded to date are:
Technology developed by surgeons and researchers at the Australian Craniofacial Unit enables exact, full-sized 3D replicas of patients' skulls to be produced from
CT x-ray scans.
These nylon models are invaluable during pre-operative planning. Craniofacial surgeons and other specialists can study the precise size, shape and malformation of the skull before surgery - without requiring the patient's presence.
Prostheses and implants can be manufactured and fitted onto the nylon model ensuring precision. The duration of surgery is often reduced, resulting in benefits to the patient and savings for the health care system.
Craniofacial Australia has been supporting those with craniofacial conditions for over 40 years in Australia and Overseas.
In 2020, as part of our commitment to research, Craniofacial Australia is offering grants to those who meet our funding guidelines on a case by case basis.
