The Cleft Collective cohort studies will investigate the biological and environmental causes of cleft, the best treatments for cleft and the psychological impact of cleft on those affected and their families.

In the future our research will help answer the three key questions that families ask:

  • What has caused my child’s cleft?
  • What are the best treatments for my child?
  • Will my child be OK (both now and in the longer term)?
