Dental Research Updates

Friday, March 1, 2019

Our 15th Annual Dental Research Updates from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry is a celebration of innovative advances in research. Research Day features an illuminating keynote address, fast-paced faculty presentations, young-scholar expositions, and poster discussions led by a range of students who stand at the forefront of science in dentistry.
