The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry will host a satellite symposium of the International Association of Dental Research (IADR) Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group March 24-26, 2013. The theme of the meeting is "Pulp Regeneration — Translational Opportunities."

Pulp regeneration's significant potential as a treatment modality will be explored at the symposium. Event lectures will focus on advances in tissue engineering, including biomaterials, cells and growth factors; dental pulp tissue engineering; bacterial contamination, inflammation and disinfection of dental pulp; and the clinical aspects of pulp regeneration.  Invited speakers and experts from around the world will host lectures.

The symposium will also feature discussion opportunities and poster presentations. Abstracts for poster presentations will be accepted through January 27, 2013.

"We are very excited to welcome symposium attendees to San Francisco," said Dr. Ove Peters, co-chair of the Department of Endodontics at the Dugoni School of Dentistry, and one of the symposium organizers. "This will be an exciting opportunity for all dental professionals interested in the future of pulp regeneration."

Early bird registration fees are $225 for PBGR members; $275 for non-members; $100 for students and residents; and $150 for guests of attendees. Costs will go up after March 1, 2013.
