Journal of Endodontics publishes proceedings of pulp biology and regeneration symposium
CHICAGO, U.S.: The American Association of Endodontists announced that the Journal of Endodontics (JOE) has published “Proceedings of the Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group Symposium 2019: Bridging Basic and Translational Research in Pulp Biology—Developing Technologies for Regenerating Vital Pulp Tissues.”
The JOE supplement — available here — includes 21 papers and has been published alongside the regular JOE September issue.
“The symposium takes place only once every three years, and this issue is packed with important scientific and clinical content,” said JOE editor Dr. Ken M. Hargreaves. “We are very pleased to be able to offer this as a valuable supplement to the September JOE.”
Serving as the Proceedings’ guest editor is International Association for Dental Research Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group President Dr. Imad About.
“The symposium focused on recent advances in stem cell/tissue engineering and on developing new technologies to regenerate the dental pulp,” About wrote in his introductory article in the Proceedings issue. “Because of the breakthroughs toward clinical trials, the operating procedures leading to clinical-grade cells for oral applications were presented and discussed.”
The Pulp Biology and Regeneration Group Symposium 2019 was held in Portland, Ore., in June 2019.
The International Association for Dental Research (IADR) is a nonprofit organization with more than 10,000 individual members worldwide, dedicated to driving dental, oral and craniofacial research to advance health and well-being worldwide through discovery and dissemination.
“The publishing of the symposium Proceedings is a testament to the positive relationship between the AAE and IADR, one that we look forward to continuing,” Hargreaves said.
