October 25, 2015 - CTOR's Second Symposium on Translational Orthodontic Research was hosted on October 23rd 2015 at the Apella, the Event Space at Alexandria Center in New York City under the theme "Craniofacial Form and Function: Integrating Translational Science to Revolutionize Treatment".
The symposium brought together scientists, clinicians, faculties and students from around the world to share their knowledge in translational research and discuss how findings will impact our orthodontic practices and lead to improved therapies for our patients.
The symposium was an enormous success with an all-day program of remarkable oral presentations, panel discussions, and posters in translational research, followed by an evening reception.
CTOR would like to appreciate all the participants, attendees, organizers and event sponsors for making this event successful.
