Dental Student Research Poster Session

The Connecticut State Dental Association in collaboration with the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine proudly presents the annual Dental Student Research Poster Session. These student research projects range from basic science experiments and clinical studies to translational research. The results of this work often lead to projects of greater scope and to publications in peer-reviewed journals. Poster presentations will be showcased in the exhibit hall both Thursday and Friday.
