CED-IADR Summer School 2017

First CED-IADR SUMMER SCHOOL “Dental tissue regeneration investigation methods” 12-16 June 2017 ǀ Marseille, France.

CED-IADR ORGANIZED FOR ITS MEMBERS A FREE SUMMER SCHOOL COORDINATED BY PROF. IMAD ABOUT IN AN INNOVATIVE RESEARCH LABORATORY OF THE FACULTY OF ODONTOLOGY IN MARSEILLE, FRANCE

General

The ‘CED-IADR Summer School’ program aims to give young investigators the opportunity to learn new research techniques and to establish professional relations with other European researchers. 

The first CED-IADR Summer School in Marseille, France (June 12-16, 2017) with 27 participants was a great achievement with success in many aspects, such as to gain theoretical knowledge and laboratory experience, and to network with your peers interested and active in the same research field.

This 1-week training course can only be followed by CED-IADR members. 

During this course, participants had few theoretical lectures directly linked to understanding the investigation methods employed. The major and most important focus of the course was to give participants the possibility to practice research techniques by themselves with the idea of applying these investigation methods in their own research projects at their home university laboratories.


Cost

Registration for the CED-IADR Summer School was free of charge! 

It is for CED-IADR members only.

Attendees had to cover their own housing/travel expenses.
