Research Day

Penn Dental Medicine Research Day 2019 will be Thursday, May 16, 2019.

Research Day 2019

Penn Dental Medicine will once again bring faculty and students together to share their research activities with one another and spotlight the depth of the School’s research enterprise at Research Day 2019, to be held May 16 at Penn Dental Medicine.

The day will include 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 2019 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; this year’s recipients will attend and be encouraged to present their work at the 2020 IADR/AADR/CADR General Session to be held in Washington, DC, in March of 2020.
