Craniofacial Science Laboratory

The Craniofacial Science Laboratory is a research laboratory located at the School of Dental Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia Health Campus. The main activities of this research facility are centered at research and development (R&D) projects in craniofacial sciences focusing into developmental, cellular and molecular aspect of craniofacial development in both health and disease. The laboratory is divided into 4 cluster of research activity i.e. Craniofacial Biology Cluster, Cellular & Developmental Biology Cluster, Genetics & Molecular Biology Cluster as well as Histology & Oral Biology Cluster.

The Craniofacial Science Laboratory has dedicated space and facilities for histology and tissue culture work. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art research facilities that include: histology-pathology, advanced hard tissue cutter, confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM), fluorescent microscopy, and micro image analyzer.
