Highlighting the best dental and oral health research in New Zealand

SJWRI Research Day 2018
Thursday 30 August
Dunedin Public Art Gallery

We welcome all those interested in cutting-edge dental and oral health research - dental professionals, practitioners, biomedical researchers, the dental industry, research funders and research users - to join us for SJWRI Research Day 2018, highlighting the research achievements of the University of Otago's Sir John Walsh Research Institute and Faculty of Dentistry.

The meeting will feature keynote presentations from leading local and international researchers, and sessions exploring research in the areas of clinical and translational research, epidemiology and public health, molecular microbiology, craniofacial biology and clinical oral physiology, dental education, oral molecular and immunopathology, and biomechanics and oral implantology. The programme will feature presentations from academic researchers, invited keynote speakers and postgraduate students, a research poster competition, and the presentation of the 2018 SJWRI Awards. A call for abstract submission will be made in May.

Registration is free for University of Otago staff and students. External registrations are associated with a modest registration fee to offset the expense of the meeting. The meeting is fully catered, and CPD points are available for all sessions. Registrations will open in May - please see Registration for more details.

This event builds on the success of IADR ANZ 2015, the International Association for Dental Research ANZ Division 55th Annual Scientific Meeting hosted by the SJWRI in August 2015, and the annual Research Days held since the establishment of the SJWRI in 2007.
