Research Day in the UK College of Dentistry

Student Research Day is an annual event for our students and faculty to interact and discuss their research accomplishments. Held in conjunction with the Annual CCTS Spring Conference, the event provides an excellent opportunity for our students to engage with students in other disciplines. Students are invited to prepare poster or oral presentations on their research. Their posters are judged and awards are presented.
