Craniomaxillofacial research

Experimental and clinical research into disorders of the craniomaxillofacial (CMF) skeleton is at the core of what AO CMF does. At AO CMF, research and development aim to produce new findings and develop them into practice so that they impact clinical care in this field. In 2021, AO CMF focused on facial fracture outcome studies and studies related to bone inflammation and infection, such as osteonecrosis.

Investing in the future

In April 2021, AO CMF's new R&D Junior Reviewers program completed its first edition. The program gave young researchers (aged 40 or younger) the opportunity to hone their grant proposal reviewing and writing skills, by playing an active role in reviewing AO CMF Start-Up Grant applications.

AO CMF also supports future generations of researchers through its Start-Up Grants for projects related to basic, preclinical, and clinical research in the fields of trauma and reconstruction in CMF surgery. The 2021 call for proposals generated a host of interesting applications, from all over the world. Researchers applied from Australia, Germany, India, Nepal, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and the United States.
