Research Day 2014

UBC Alumni: Advancing Craniofacial Health

Tuesday, January 28, 2014
UBC Student Union Building Ballroom

Research Day 2014 is the first major celebratory event recognizing UBC Dentistry’s first 50 years. Proudly, the Faculty of Dentistry has developed and supported undergraduate and graduate research training because UBC is a research-intensive university.

In celebration of our Faculty’s first 50 years and in recognition of our research success, we have invited seven diverse alumni to present at Research Day 2014: two are faculty members at UBC while five have accepted academic positions around the world.

Collectively, they are advancing craniofacial research in the areas of facial pain, oral cancer, periodontal disease, development biology, and salivary biology. We all look forward to their exciting presentations on how their research is advancing oral health not only in British Columbia but worldwide.
