Alice Goodwin, DDS, PhD, is the 2017 recipient of the Damsky Award (Program in Craniofacial Biology FY16-17 Exploratory Grants Initiative). Her proposal is "Analysis of craniofacial dysmorphology and malocclusion in Costello syndrome individuals and mouse models." She is working with Drs. Sunil Kapila and Ophir Klein in the Department of Orofacial Sciences and the Program in Craniofacial Biology.

The award is supported by an endowed fund established by Caroline Damsky, PhD, longtime researcher and faculty member at UCSF. The fund supports projects developed by trainees and junior faculty in related oral health clinical specialties, such as orthodontics and craniofacial anomalies, with an emphasis on research that proposes to mine the Craniofacial Center’s data for new insights into the etiology and treatment of craniofacial defects.
