Research Interests

I am Head of the Leicester Maxillofacial research group and Chairman of the Head & Neck Cancer Multidisciplinary team in Leicester. We have strong research links with the Molecular Oncology and Engineering departments at the University of Leicester and in Budapest. There are a number of clinical and basic science research students studying for a higher degree. I am a member of the British Association of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons Research Trainers Group and Regional Head & Neck oncology lead for the National Institute of Health Research, UK.

As a result of my strong research interests I have published over 80 papers in peer reviewed journals and a number of book chapters.

My main areas of research include:

  • oral cancer
  • facial reconstruction techniques
  • finite element analysis and bioengineering
  • facial trauma
  • management of salivary gland tumours
  • and infective disease.

We also present work at surgical meetings and Leicester is currently a UK “hotspot” for Maxillofacial presentations and publications.
