2020 IADR/AADR/CADR General SessionThe 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting.
The recordings in this library are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.
This session can be purchased as part of the full meeting recordings within the product bundles
Session DescriptionThis symposium will cover the history of salivary research spanning the past 100 years . Research advances, discoveries, and milestones in salivary research will be put into perspective as they led to the current state of knowledge. Emphasis will be given to the research areas pertaining to salivary glands, salivary secretion and physiology, and salivary proteins. It will be discussed how knowledge gained in these areas over the years helped to advance the therapy of salivary gland dry mouth disease as well as the diagnosis of oral and systemic diseases. The last presentation will cover the current state of the art in salivary research and describe how with the help of modern research methods and technologies we will be able to address the remaining questions and challenges in basic salivary research and translate them into the clinic.
