Trevor Coward

Trevor has recently formed the “Academic Centre of Reconstructive Science” which comes under the Division of Tissue Engineering and Biophotonics, and has over 30 years of experience with rehabilitating patients with facial/body prostheses. The focus of his research is to rebuild faces using innovative prostheses based on novel technologies. The patients rehabilitated include children, young adults who have congenital malformations of the face, adults who have been treated for oral cancer, those following trauma to the face and neck or suffering from war wounds.

The main focus of Trevor's research is based upon the use of digital technology in the planning and provision of facial prostheses. This includes CT, MRI, Laser scan data and more recently stereophotogrammetry used in conjunction with CAD/CAM techniques to produce anatomical facial /body parts in silicone.

He has published 39 papers in peer-reviewed journals and is a clinical research fellow at the world renown Maxillofacial Centre in Edmonton, Canada and more recently was made a Honorary Clinical Professor at Hong Kong University Prince Philip Dental hospital for his research in maxillofacial prostheses.
