The 98th General Session & Exhibition of the IADR, was to be held in conjunction with the 49th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Dental Research and the 44th Annual Meeting of the Canadian Association for Dental Research, from March 18-21, 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA. Due to COVID 19 and the world pandemic, the meeting had to be canceled, but we were able to collect some of the science that was planned for presentation to be available to our members as part of an on demand meeting in the IADR CE On Demand library. The recordings in this libaray are a selection of the science that was to be presented onsite at the General Session. These recordings give you the opportunity to participate in the meeting and hear from leading researchers. The recordings include IADR Distinguished Lecture Series speakers, IADR Centennial Plenaries and symposia from a collection of scientific groups and networks.

We urge you to interact with other viewers and discuss the presentations in the IADR Community

A maximum of 18.75 continuing education hours are available from this meeting.

International and American Associations for Dental Research Statement on Presidential Proclamation Suspending Visa Programs

0 846

June 24, 2020, Alexandria, Va., USA - The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) are disappointed by the administration’s June 22 Proclamation Suspending Entry of Aliens Who Present a Risk to the U.S. Labor Market Following the Coronavirus Outbreak that suspends the entry of certain foreign workers into the United States. 

While the proclamation is intended to temporarily block foreign workers entering the United States on H-1B, H-2B, J and L visas, the consequences of such a move will be long-lasting. Not only will this decision affect the relationship between the United States and our partners abroad, but it will also have a negative impact on American research and innovation and therein, the U.S. economy.
