Bethesda, Md. — The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research will host a craniofacial research symposium May 6 on the National Institutes of Health campus.

“Looking Back and Facing the Future: From NIDR to NIDCR,” will take place in the Lipsett Amphitheater in NIH Building 10 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For those unable to attend in person, the event will also be live-streamed and archived. The symposium is free and open to the public, and no registration is required.

According to NIDCR, the event will commemorate its 1948 founding as well as the addition of word “Craniofacial” to the Institute name in 1998. The program will also showcase research accomplishments in craniofacial biology and include presentations on craniofacial development and regeneration, wound healing, salivary gland development and regeneration, and bone loss. Two former NIDCR directors, Dr. Lawrence Tabak and Dr. Harold Slavkin, will deliver talks at the event. 

At the end of the symposium, participants will be eligible to receive up to 6.5 ADA continuing education credits. NIDCR is an ADA Continuing Education Recognition Program provider.
