Penn CREF » Biofilms, Microbiomes and Oral Diseases: Challenges and Future Perspectives


Biofilms, Microbiomes and Oral Diseases: Challenges and Future Perspectives
Date: September 30, 2017
Location: Penn Wharton China Center in Beijing.

This year, the Penn CREF-sponsored symposium will present the state-of-the-art in oral biofilms and provide a platform for discussion and collaboration on the best ways forward to learn more about this critical component of dental disease. The symposium will feature researchers who are at the forefront of biofilm research, studying mechanisms of biofilm assembly and seeking novel therapeutic approaches using nanotechnology to control biofilm-dependent oral infectious diseases. Invited speakers are the outstanding researchers and leaders in this field in China together with prominent researchers from Penn. We expect this to be a historic beginning of an important research dialogue.

Poster presentations from students and post-docs will supplement the impressive list of speakers. We are especially pleased to celebrate the contribution of these individuals as they represent our future academic leaders in the world of oral health.
