Research Day

38th Annual Research Day | March 2, 2022

The Adams School of Dentistry’s Office of Research Discovery and Innovation hosts an annual Research Day to highlight our committed to inspiring, creating and supporting all aspects of research, discovery and innovation.

This is highlighted by the diverse, inspiring and high-quality accomplishments of our students, faculty, staff, research fellows and visiting scholars being shared at the Research Day. It is clear from the array of work presented, that investigators within the school interact and collaborate with investigators on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus, as well as with leading investigators and institutions elsewhere in the United States and abroad.

Indeed, we are very excited to support oral and poster presentations, hands on workshops and CEs as well as keynote addresses by leaders in our fields. Stay tuned for 2022’s event!

Honoring Diversity and Inclusion in Dental Research

At the 37th Research Day, a tree was planted as in honor of the keynote speaker, Dr. Rena D’Souza, director of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, as a symbol of diversity and inclusion in the dental, oral and craniofacial workforce.
