Title: AADR/CADR/NIDCR Mentoring and Networking Lunch (ticketed event)
The AADR, CADR and NIDCR are offering a mentoring and networking lunch aimed at facilitating interactions between predoctoral and postdoctoral students and dental, oral and craniofacial research investigators. This event, planned for Wednesday March 21 from 12:15 pm to 1:30 pm is designed to provide an opportunity to students to interact with experienced research mentors. The goal is to provide an informal venue for students to obtain guidance on their research program and research career trajectory, and to expand their network of mentors and peers to support and facilitate their research career success. Mentors will be encouraged to lead informal, motivational and realistic discussions about developing a successful research career. Lunch tables will be organized by research topic or career pathway, and two mentors will be assigned to each table. When registering, participants do not need to select a specific table and are free to move among topics/tables during the session. Event participants will receive a box lunch to better facilitate transitions from table to table.
AADR/CADR Annual Meeting attendees who qualify for student registration (students and non-independent postdoctoral researchers) will be able to register for this event for the added price of $20 with their meeting registration.
