CED-IADR Summer School 2018

“IN VITRO ORAL BIOFILMS MODELS: FROM DEVELOPMENT TO ASSESSMENT” FROM JULY 9-13, 2018 ǀ MADRID, SPAIN
Prof. Mariano Sanz and David Herrera, and their ETEP (Etiology and Therapy of Periodontal Disease) research group will host the 2018 CED-IADR summer school in the Faculty of Odontology at the University Complutense in Madrid, Spain.

General

Topic: “IN VITRO ORAL BIOFILMS MODELS: FROM DEVELOPMENT TO ASSESSMENT”

Date: JULY 9-13, 2018 ǀ MADRID, SPAIN

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.

The main focus of the summer school is to give participants the possibility to practice new research techniques, so to apply these methods in their own research projects at their home university laboratories. During this course, participants will receive, in addition to the practical learning, only theoretical lecture directly linked to the broad understanding the investigation methods being trained in.

Price

Registration for the CED-IADR Summer School is free of charge, but limited to maximum 20 selected candidates (for CED-IADR members only)!
