First Symposium in  Translational Orthodontic Research

First Symposium in Translational Orthodontic Research

In October 2012, CTOR hosted its first symposium at the Apella Center in New York City.

The symposium was an enormous success with an all-day program of oral presentations, panel discussions, and poster viewing, followed by an evening reception.

Faculty, students, and orthodontists from North America, South America and Europe came to present their research and share ideas.

CTOR would like to thank everyone who was able to attend, for making this event such a wild success.

We would especially like to recognize Columbia University, University of Connecticut, SUNY Stony Brook, and University of Kentucky for their participation.
