Join Us! Thursday, March 8, 2018 11:30 am - 5 pm
The College of Dentistry's annual Clinic and Research Day provides a forum for students, postgrads, and research staff to present research achievements to the members of the College and larger research community. Additionally, Clinic and Research Day offers Continuing Education credit opportunities, dental products and service exhibits, a keynote lecture and student awards. Also featured will be CaseCAT (Critically Appraised Topics) competitions, featuring actual cases that exemplify unique and interesting aspects of dental practice combined with critically appraised literature reviews relevant to those cases.
Join faculty, postgraduates, and students as they present a wide range of research activities, from basic research, public health and prevention, and the development of best practices in dentistry, to the creation of techniques and technology that will allow teeth to be regenerated in adults. Research at the College spans from “bench to chairside” to advance diagnostic and interventional knowledge and therapies in oral health and other fields.
The event will begin with lunch at 11:30 a.m. and run until 5 p.m., and will focus on student and postgraduate research presentations and feature a nationally known keynote speaker. Continuing Education credit will be available for attending the poster presentations and the keynote presentation.
Support and learn from our students, residents, and fellows as they present a wide variety of posters highlighting current research covering basic, behavioral, clinical, and applied sciences applicable in public health and prevention, the development of best practices in dentistry, and the creation of techniques and technology that will allow teeth to be regenerated in adults. Research occurs at the College from the “bench to the chairside” (and the reverse)—to accelerate diagnostic and interventional therapies for College patients. Clinic and Research Day allows the postgraduates, students, and their faculty mentors to share their research with the dental and medical communities.
Driving life-changing discoveries through research is one of the goals of the University’s IGNITE: The Campaign for UIC, its $37 million fundraising campaign.
Dr. Jacques E. Nör
Professor and Chair, Cariology, Restorative Sciences, and Endodontics
School of Dentistry, University of Michigan
Topic: “Therapeutic Targeting of Head and Neck Cancer Stem Cells.”
Dr. Nör is the Donald A. Kerr Endowed Professor of Dentistry and serves as Chair of the Department of Cariology, Restorative Sciences and Endodontics at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. Jacques served as the Co-Director of the University of Michigan Head and Neck SPORE funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). He has served as a member of National Institutes of Health (NIH) study sections, and has been the principal investigator for several NIH grants. Jacques is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS), and recently received the Distinguished Scientist Award from International Association for Dental Research (IADR). Jacques is Associate Editor of the Journal of Dental Research and a member of the editorial board of several journals. His research interests are in salivary gland malignancies, tumor angiogenesis and in stem cell biology. His current research foci are the study of the pathobiology of cancer stem cells in head and neck squamous cell carcinomas and salivary gland cancer. More recently, his laboratory also started studies aiming at the understanding of mechanisms regulating mesenchymal stem cell differentiation in the context of tissue engineering.
