Dental students wrap up Research Day

April 6, 2010

Last week, the Kornberg School of Dentistry held its annual Research Day  – highlighting the innovative studies headed by students and faculty. Research Day gives the researchers the opportunity to explain their findings to fellow students and staff.

Each year, posters presented by dental students are awarded for their merit and commitment to furthering research on oral health issues.

This years winners were:

  • Junior Elyce Link – “Cone-beam CT in early diagnosis of carotid artery calcifications”
  • Junior Arnav R. Mistry – “Development of a PCR detection system for E faecalis bacteriophage fEf11”
  • Sophomore Drayton Smith, “Pilot in-vitro evaluation of a novel tooth whitening agent.”

Postdoctoral student winners were:

  • Meriam Seyedain, a graduate student in periodontology and oral implantology – “A whole saliva sulfur assay to screen for periodontitis”
  • Justin Zalewsky, a graduate student in periodontology and oral implantology – “A Comparison of CT imaging software for dental implants”
