Ashraf Ayoub, , PhD, FDS RCS(Ed), FDS RCPS (Glasg), MDS, BDS
Professor of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Glasgow University Great Britain
Ashraf Ayoubqualified BDS from the University of Cairo in 1982. He completed a three year Residency in Oral Surgery at Cairo University and graduated MDS. He then moved to the University of Glasgow, where he graduated PhD in 1993. He gained the FDS RCS Ed in 1992 and in 1998 completed his higher specialist training in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. He was appointed Senior Lecturer in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Glasgow in 1998 andProfessor of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in 2003. He is currently The Glasgow lead of the Scottish Craniofacial Research Group.
Prof. Ayoubis the editor of the oral Surgery section of the International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. He is leading a research group to study facial deformities using the recent advances in 3D imaging. Prof. Ayoubis the lead surgeon of a team which includes orthodontics, technologists, psychologist, computer scientists and statistician to investigate facial malformations. He has received several awards & honours, published around 60 research articles on this field of interest and lectured on the same topic locally, nationally & internationally. Prof. Ayoub’sresearch team was successful in obtaining several research grants to conduct an extensive multidisciplinary research projects to characterisefacial deformities and quantify surgical changes. The results of these investigations were presented at several internationally conferences.
He also supervised several Master’s and PhD’s in the area of stereophotogrammetryand edited a text book on the correction of dentofacialdeformities. In collaboration with colleagues he organisesthe Glasgow biannialcourse on the recent advances of the diagnosis and management of dento-facial deformities. He is now also one of the leading clinicians researching the use of 4D stereo photogrammetry for the assessment of facial animation.
Professor Ayoubis the principal investigator and leading a team of researchers to study the utilisationof the recent advances of bone bioengineering for maxillofacial reconstruction.. He also coordinated the Bone Bioengineering summit in Glasgow in 2005. The team was successful in obtaining a research grant to conduct an extensive animal research. The results of this investigation were presented locally, nationally, and internationally in addition to several published articles in refereed journals. The results were translated to human application, BMP has been successful used for the reconstruction of alveolar cleft. In recognition of his contribution to the filed of bioengineering he was elected a member of the executive committee of the United Kingdom Society of Biomaterials (UKSB) in 2008.
