Dr. Richard and Nancy Christiansen Craniofacial Research and Education Lecture on October 26
The Dr. Richard and Nancy Christiansen Craniofacial Research and Education Lecture featuring Ophir Klein, MD, PhD, will take place on October 26 via Zoom.
Dr. Richard Christiansen was an academic orthodontist who received the PhD degree at the University of Minnesota and is a former Dean of the School of Dentistry at the University of Michigan. The Dr. Richard & Nancy Christiansen Lectureship for Craniofacial Research & Education is an endowed lecture within the School of Dentistry created in 2017 through a generous gift from Dr. Christiansen and his wife, Nancy. This lectureship provides an opportunity for faculty, students, residents, and alumni to interact with experts—sharing ideas in the broad field of craniofacial research, clinical care, and education. This year’s lecture is intended for a mixed audience of clinicians and researchers and features the work of Ophir Klein, MD, PhD, who is currently Professor of Orofacial Sciences and Pediatrics, the Larry L. Hillblom Distinguished Professor in Craniofacial Anomalies, and the Charles J. Epstein Professor of Human Genetics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Dr. Klein will present a lecture entitled "Development, Renewal, and Plasticity of Oral and Dental Tissues" and field questions via Zoom presentation.
