In 2016, the NYU Dentistry Office of Research joined forces with the NYU Academy of Distinguished Educators to present the NYU Dentistry Research Scholarship Expo -- formerly presented as two separate research events: Annual Research Days and Clinical and Educational Scholarship Showcase.

With this new initiative, all faculty and students of NYU College of Dentistry are invited to participate and share their work with their peers, professors and the entire NYU Dentistry community.

ePoster Presentation

A novel concept was introduced in 2014 -- the Electronic Poster, or ePoster. An ePoster utilizes a large monitor and computer to display multimedia versions of a poster. It gives an opportunity for a computer savvy presenter in the poster session to more effectively convey information that would not necessarily be possible with a traditional printed poster. It also enhances visualization to attract interest of attendees. This method of presentation may change the way conferences conduct poster sessions in the future.
