I am using this for Research purpose. so tell me what options i have to animate the face. and Which tool/software should i used?

you can animate faces in pretty much every 3d tool, including blender (but i only found a nice tutorial on 3ds max page :P) might have to search a bit on youtube and other sites to find a good one to start.

The fist important part will be to retopoligize the face.

as scans generally don't allow for much movement in a logical way. Once that is done you have to bake the highpoly to the retopo - then animate.

So start with guides to retopology, then learn about baking, then animation. and then about poses

more or less in that order should give you the best results to learning it.
