Research Day

Save the Date for Penn Dental Medicine Research Day 2020, Thursday, May 14, 2020.

Research Day

Research Day is an annual event that brings faculty and students together to share their research activities with one another and spotlight the depth of the School’s research enterprise at Penn Dental Medicine.

The day includes a program of presentations by faculty and two invited speakers, along with poster presentations, representing DMD-student and faculty and junior investigator research.

In addition, student and junior investigator research will be recognized with the selection of the 2020 AADR Travel Grants. The AADR Travel Grant program was launched by Penn Dental Medicine in 2014 to build opportunities to advance ongoing research and leadership among students and junior researchers; recipients will attend and present their work at the 2021 AADR/CADR Annual Meeting to be held in Boston, MA, March 17-20, 2021.
