ADAF dental students' research conference set for April
February 04, 2013
2012: Forty-one dental students attended last year's ADAF DSCR.
In its ongoing efforts to support oral health research, the ADA Foundation is inviting deans at U.S. and Canadian dental schools to nominate students for its 49th Annual Dental Students' Conference on Research, set for April 21-23 in Gaithersburg and Bethesda, Md.
Student nominees should have demonstrated interest and ability in research. The email invitation the ADAF is sending to deans will outline the requirements and nomination procedure.
“The ADAF strongly supports today's dental students as they pursue tomorrow's scientific explorations,” said Dr. David Whiston, ADAF president. “We expect their efforts in oral health research to yield significant benefits for the general public and future generations.”
The conference takes place on the campuses of the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg and the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. Student attendees network with scientists from the ADA, the ADAF Paffenbarger Research Center, NIST, the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research and with other oral health industry leaders.
