The Craniofacial Research Laboratory focuses on new solutions to clinical problems in pediatric plastic surgery. The lab is built around the strengths of CHOP's clinical practices and basic science research.

Dr. Nah-Cederquist investigates solutions to clinical problems in pediatric plastic surgery. Her lab is built around the strengths of CHOP's clinical practices and basic science research. This offers the unique opportunity to directly test hypotheses born from clinical problems in the laboratory, and to take new technologies and concepts developed in the laboratory to patient care.

Dr. Koyama's research focuses on Hereditary Multiple Exostoses (HME), a genetic disorder that causes the development of multiple benign tumors on the surface of the metaphyses of long bones. Based on his extensive knowledge of the normal processes of skeletal development and growth, Dr. Koyama's research aims to clarify the molecular mechanisms of HME formation and growth.
