Ashraf AYOUB

I am Bachelor of Dental Surgery, Master’s of Science (Cairo University), Doctor of Philosophy (Glasgow University) and fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow (United Kingdom). I am the professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Glasgow University, and the Glasgow lead of the Scottish Craniofacial Research Group. I am the director of the postgraduate programme “Masters of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery” of the University of Glasgow. I am a member of the editorial board of several international journals.

In the last 20 years I led the research group to study facial deformities using the recent advances in 3D/4D imaging. I pioneered the application of the dynamic 3D facial imaging (4D) for the analysis of cranio-facial anomalies. My team and I published 160 research articles on this field of interest in tissue bioengineering. I lectured on the same topics locally, nationally and internationally, and conduct an international biennial course on the recert advances in the diagnosis and management of dentofacial deformities. I obtained several research grants to conduct extensive multidisciplinary research projects to characterize facial deformities and quantify surgical changes as well as applying the recent advances in tissue bioengineering for maxillofacial reconstruction. The results of these investigations were presented at several international conferences. I also supervise several Masters and PhDs in the area of stereophotogrammetry and edited a text book and many chapters on the correction of dento-facial deformities.
