Alexander Macgregor Open Day Lecture

Speaker: Professor Jack Ferracane, Professor and Chair of Biomaterials and Biomechanics, School of Dentistry, Oregon Health and Science University, USA.

Practice-based research is a relatively new concept to dentistry, in which clinical studies are performed by trained private practitioner members of local or regional networks in their own offices under the normal constraints of their daily practice.This presentation will discuss the establishment of one such NIH/NIDCR-funded network, Northwest PRECEDENT, a collaboration between the Oregon Health & Science University and the University of Washington and including member dentists in five states of the northwest of the United States.Outcomes of completed and ongoing studies and their potential impact on evidence-based dental practice will be presented.

Wine reception will start at 16.30
