2022 AADOCR/CADR Annunal Meeting

The 51st Annual Meeting of the AADOCR was held in conjunction with the 46th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 14-26 as a hybrid experience with 839 individuals from 18 countries attending in person in Atlanta, GA and 692 individuals from 21 countries attending virtually. 

The recordings in this library from the meeting are a selection of the science that was to be presented as part of the Annual Meeting. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

Session Description 
The field of salivary research shifted immensely in the last two years during the COVID-19 pandemic, where saliva played a central diagnostic role and those who study the oral cavity were critical to our understanding of infection and transmission. In the last decade, cutting edge multiomics technologies, novel therapeutics and clinical trials, new bioengineering approaches and even new salivary glands have changed the face of our field. Where do we go from here? Who will be leading us? This session aims to bring together graduate students and postdocs to hear from early-career investigators in both intramural NIH programs and extramural academic institutions in a panel-style session regarding their career paths and advice. Hiring and funding at many institutions has been uncertain over the last few years. This session aims to prepare the trainees in the salivary field for success by learning from the investigators that have most recently navigated the job market. The speakers represent diverse backgrounds and career trajectories and will offer their insights, best practices and tips. Additionally, attendees will engage with one another and the speakers to discuss the future directions for salivary research

Learning Objectives
  • Learn about diverse career experiences from early career investigators from both intramural NIH and extramural academic programs.
  • Connect graduate students and postdocs with colleagues, collaborators, and mentors; explore best practices, resources and other tips for success in the salivary research field.
  • Engage in a dialogue about the future direction(s) of salivary gland research.
