Dental scientists convene in Dallas
Date:3/27/2008

Did you know that teledentistry can help provide orthodontic treatment to disadvantaged children? Did you know that saliva can provide diagnostic clues to your systemic health? Have you heard about the new biological clock that links tooth growth with other metabolic processes?

These are but a few of the thousands of pieces of information which will be presented when the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) holds its 37th Annual Meeting & Exhibition, April 2-5, 2008, at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

This year, nearly 1,300 scientific presentations will be made, divided among plenary/oral/poster sessions and symposia/workshops. Estimates are that over 2,000 dental scientists, educators, students, and practicing dentists will convene, representing the latest thinking in dental research.

In addition to the individual presentations, there will be plenary sessions, symposia, and workshops during the four-day meeting, dealing with special-interest topics ranging from improving the oral health of the elderly to advances in local anesthesia. There will also be a Late-breaking News session on Saturday morning, featuring nearly 20 exciting presentations on new discoveries.

Featured during Meeting Week will be the AADR/Johnson & Johnson Oral Health Products Hatton Awards Competition for student investigators. The presentations, in poster format, will be judged by top-level scientists. In addition to receiving cash prizes and plaques, winners will compete in the IADR/Unilever Hatton Awards Competition in Toronto, ON, Canada, in July.

The Opening Ceremonies and Awards Program, on Wednesday, April 2, will provide an exciting kick-off for the week's activities. Many awards and fellowships, including the 2008 AADR Distinguished Scientist Award (green section), will be presented.

The Distinguished Lecture Series will feature presentations by three eminent scientists:

  • Nanotechnology for the Enhancement of Human Health, Jim Baker, Jr. [Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine & Biological Science (MNIMBS), Ann Arbor], 11 a.m., Wednesday, April 2

  • Engineering the Clinical Research Enterprise in a Multi-institutional and Multidisciplinary Environment, Milton Packer (University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas), 11:30 a.m., Thursday, April 3

  • Genetic Control of Heart Development and Disease, Eric Olson (University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas), 11:30 a.m., Friday, April 4

These lectures will occur in the Stemmons Ballroom of the Hilton Anatole Hotel.

  • A Plenary Session, Careers in Dental and Craniofacial Research: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Mainly the Good!, will be held for students on Thursday, April 3, at 4 p.m.

  • The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, one of the National Institutes of Health, is celebrating its 60th anniversary with daily workshops and symposia.

One of the unique opportunities offered to students is Lunch & Learning, where students may sign up to discuss, over an informal luncheon, topics of interest with senior researchers. This year, Lunch & Learning will be held on Thursday, April 3. Ten senior scientists from a wide variety of disciplines are volunteering their services for this event.

Returning for the fifth consecutive year are Keynote Speakers, who will be presenting state-of-the-science addresses in all of the Scientific Groups.

Also returning to the AADR meeting is a Job Opportunity Bulletin Service (JOBS), available to all registrants, located in the AADR Registration Area. Bulletin boards will be available to job recruiters to post job vacancies. There will also be a New Member Orientation Reception (Wednesday, April 3, 8:30 a.m.), where new members can learn about becoming more involved in the AADR and its specialty Groups and Committees.

For the 27th consecutive year, commercial exhibits will be featured at the Meeting. Meeting participants are encouraged to visit the booths of the following:
