Penn Dental Medicine presented the inaugural Penn Periodontal Conference, June 23-28, 2013 on the University of Pennsylvania campus.
The Conference featured presentations by internationally respected researchers on the latest research in periodontology within the topics of inflammation, microbiology, periodontal regeneration and repair, and the oral-systemic health connection. Other areas of discussion included innate and adaptive immunity, bone remodeling, oral medicine, disease specificity, epigenetics, stem cells, and clinical microbiology.
The scientific program was structured to encourage interaction among participants with presentations scheduled in the morning and evening so that the afternoons were free for attendees to discuss their work and the research posters of others. A total of 69 posters were presented at the Conference.
The interactive atmosphere offered many occasions to explore ideas and research collaborations.
Penn Dental Medicine hopes to present the 2nd Penn Periodontal Conference in two years.
