About Research Day

College Research Day was instituted in 2000 to highlight and celebrate research and scholarly activities of the faculty, predoctoral students and residents in the College. It is held annually about the 3rd Tuesday in February, and contributes to preparing our research accomplishments for presentation and the national American Dental Education Association and American Association for Dental Research meetings in the spring. The day was initiated by a Plenary Session provided by Dr. Greg Gerhardt, RCTF Professor of Anatomy and Neurobiology and Director of the Center for Sensor Technology at UK; “Translational Approaches to Treat Parkinson’s Disease: From Microelectrode Technologies to the Clinic”. This was followed by oral and poster presentations. Each year, the Dental Hygiene Program from Lexington Community College participates with table clinics from 20 students. Awards are provided to the top presentations from predoctoral students, residents, and dental hygiene students at a banquet in the Boone Center. Dr. M. John Novak presented “Periodontal Disease, System Disease and the Aging Process: Exploring the Link” at the dinner. CRD2003 was funded through support from the College of Dentistry, Senior Vice President for Research, and the Kentucky Chapter of the AADR.
