Research Day is an annual event hosted by the College of Dentistry to showcase research conducted by our dental students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and residents. It celebrates their exceptional efforts as part of the outstanding research program here at the college.
Research Day also prepares our students for the national competitions of the International Association for Dental Research/American Association of Dental Research (IADR/AADR) and provides valuable feedback to students from senior researchers and distinguished faculty. Top presenters qualify to compete at the ADA/Dentsply Student Clinician Program at the American Dental Association (ADA) meeting or at the nationally recognized Hinman Student Dental Research Symposium.
Every year, the event features a distinguished lecturer from among the world’s leading oral health researchers.
