We are very proud of the research that we have funded so far at Great Ormond Street and St Andrews Centre, Chelmsford. Research has been carried out in genetics, speech therapy, orthodontics and surgery. We continue to make headway into understanding why clefts occur including a recent breakthrough in genetics (see the FOXF2 Gene Discovery report). The Research Steering Group met recently to look at which new research projects CLEFT should fund. We will update the website with our research news as it develops further.

At CLEFT, our vision is of a future where clefts are preventable. Until we get there, we want to improve the lives of those born with cleft lip and palate.
