How to Watch: Stay tuned for a recording of the symposium.
This two-part symposium marks the start of NIDCR’s year-long 75th anniversary celebration.
In the first part of the symposium, three former NIDCR directors, plus current Director Rena D’Souza, D.D.S., Ph.D., reflected on their accomplishments, memorable moments, and visions for NIDCR during their directorships.
In the second part, six intramural investigators described the cutting-edge NIDCR research that has shaped dentistry and medicine during their time at the institute. Questions from the audience followed both parts.
The symposium concluded with an acknowledgment of the 400-plus contributors to the NIH/NIDCR 2021 report “Oral Health in America: Advances and Challenges.”
