Get the latest dental knowledge at the 31st annual Clinic and Research Day, set for Thursday, March 8, at the UIC College of Dentistry.
The free event will begin with lunch at 11:30 a.m. and run until 5 p.m., and will focus on student and postgraduate research presentations and feature a nationally known keynote speaker. Three hours of continuing education credit will be available for attending the poster presentations and the keynote presentation.**
“Our students, residents, and fellows will present a wide variety of posters highlighting their current research,” said Dr. Lyndon Cooper, Associate Dean for Research at the UIC College of Dentistry. “They cover a wide range of topics in the basic, behavioral, clinical, and applied sciences. Predoctoral, postgraduate, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and their faculty mentors will be competing for awards in a number of categories.”
At the College, faculty, postgraduates, and students conduct a wide range of research activities, from basic research, public health and prevention, and the development of best practices in dentistry, to the creation of techniques and technology that will allow teeth to be regenerated in adults. Research occurs at the College from the “bench to the chairside” (and the reverse)—to accelerate diagnostic and interventional therapies for College patients. Clinic and Research Day allows the postgraduates, students, and their faculty mentors to share their research with the dental and medical communities.
Driving life-changing discoveries through research is one of the goals of the University’s IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC, its $37 million fundraising campaign.
Keynote speaker will be Dr. Jacques E. Nör, Professor and Chair, Cariology, Restorative Sciences, and Endodontics, School of Dentistry, University of Michigan. His talk will be, “Therapeutic Targeting of Head and Neck Cancer Stem Cells.”
“There will be dental products and services and vendors’ exhibits,” said Dr. David Crowe, Professor of Periodontics and Chair of the Clinic and Research Day Committee. “Dentists, students, postgraduates, residents, our medical colleagues, and those interested in research and the vendors’ exhibits are welcome to attend.”
