D2 Neha Das has been selected to present at the ADA/DENTSPLY Student Clinician Research Program during the 52nd Annual ADA Scientific Session in Las Vegas, Nevada, from October 9 - 11, 2011.
The ADA/DENTSPLY Student Clinician Research Program was developed originally in 1959. Under the terms of the program, each dental school in the United States and Puerto Rico is invited to select one student to represent it in a research poster presentation competition held during the ADA Annual Session. The program allows DENTSPLY the opportunity to contribute to the advancement of dental sciences and offers each school an opportunity to showcase their student talent.
Das’s research - centered in the Klein Lab at UCSF, working with Dr. Ophir Klein, and with Dr. Marianne Bronner-Fraser at Caltech, where Dr. Tatiana Hochgreb was her mentor - is focused on the role of Musashi genes in craniofacial development. Previously Neha and her work have been honored at the UCSF Research and Clinical Excellence Day Award (First Place – Predoctoral Category).
