  • University Hospital Craniofacial Center of New Jersey was formed to provide state of the art care for children and adults afflicted with craniofacial disorders. Our center is based out of University Hospital, the largest academic tertiary care medical center in the State of New Jersey. The treatment of Craniofacial Syndromes (for example, cleft lip/palate, Crouzon's syndrome, Apert's Syndrome) requires a multidisciplinary approach. As such, the New Jersey Cleft and Craniofacial Center is comprised of specialists from multiple areas of expertise.

This collaboration provides an opportunity to combine the best science, engineering, and design capabilities in order to better address urban environmental issues and questions.
