9th AADR Fall Focused Symposium:
Advances in Precision Oral Health Research



NIH Bethesda Campus, Md., USA - November 8-9, 2018


AADR has secured additional meeting space that allows for an onsite audio and slides only simulcast of day one Fall Focused Symposium programing.  This allows AADR to continue accepting registrations for the AADR Fall Focused Symposium (FFS). Please note, those registering at this time will be viewing day one of the FFS via simulcast in a separate room at the NIH campus.  If space becomes available, your registration will be moved to the main meeting room in the order in which the registration was received. The second day of the FFS will be held in a room that will accommodate all attendees.  We hope you will still plan to attend this important symposium.

If you are interested in attending this event, please fill out the form at www.iadr.org/2018ffs/Registration.


What is precision medicine?

Precision medicine is a medical model that proposes the customization of healthcare with medical decisions, treatments, practices or products being tailored to the individual patient. Custom interventions can then be concentrated on those who will benefit, sparing expense and side effects for those who will not.

Progress toward the development of personalized and precision health care requires intensive, interdisciplinary research collaborations. Developing effective and personalized disease-management strategies starts with research toward the development of user-focused, point-of-care technologies that detect health problems in a range of diverse settings, including underserved, low-resource communities nationwide and internationally.
