CTOR Symposium

Symposium focused on Translational Orthodontic Research

CTOR organizes an international symposium in Translational Orthodontic Research.


Our fellows include a group of clinicians/scientists from different countries and with a diverse background. After they complete the CTOR fellowship, some or our students follow further training in different specialties (orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, endodontics) or craniofacial research and enroll in PhD programs.

To be a CTOR member and fellow was one of my dreams, since my friend told me that there is an excellent chance to do Orthodontic research at CTOR. I said “Wow! This is what I want!” Luckily, my dream came true. I could study here with my brilliant mentor-- Dr. Mani Alikhani, a lot of extraordinary scientists, and our intelligent fellows. We are a big family here. Although we come from different countries of the world, we help each other, learn from each other, like each other, and grow together.
