12th Annual Research Day Winners Announced

April 2017

The Faculty of Dentistry Research Day provides an excellent opportunity for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants and research associates to showcase their research work in academic posters and oral presentations. Held on April 6, 2017 at New Residence Hall this year was the 12th edition of Research Day. The day was packed with intellectually inspiring graduate research work from a wide range of subjects from both Research Divisions.
