Dr. Butali directs the African Craniofacial Anomalies Network, collaboration between scientists in Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria and Rwanda. His research is currently funded through a K99/R00 award from the National Institute for Dental and Craniofacial Research entitled “Genetics studies of non-syndromic clefts in populations of African descent.” He is also involved in the investigation of subclinical phenotypes for orofacial clefts as well as examining the role of micronutrients in oral clefts prevention.
Other interest includes genetics of aggressive periodontitis and genetics of preterm births in the African population.
