It's once again time for the Annual FaceBase Community Forum on Tuesday, June 13th - this time based in Los Angeles! But you may also participate remotely as well!

Date and Times

Tuesday, June 13
All day meeting starting at 9:00 am Pacific/12:00 pm Eastern and concluding with a poster session.


The theme for this year's meeting is "Empowering data-driven research across the full translational science spectrum of dental, oral, and craniofacial (DOC) research". The goal of the meeting is to highlight data availabilities, demonstrate emerging FaceBase features, resources, and capabilities, and explore how FaceBase can better serve translational DOC research.

Our distinguished invited speakers span the translational spectrum of DOC data and include: Rena D’Souza, Director of NIDCR; Mary Marazita (Univ of Pittsburgh); Jin Xiao (Univ of Rochester); Olivier Duverger (NIDCR); Abimbola Oladayo (Univ of Iowa); Jay Patel (Temple University); Harrison Brand (Harvard University); Ross Whitaker (Univ of Utah); Gage Crump (USC); Hong Li (Univ of Colorado, School of Dental Medicine) and Crystal Rogers (UC Davis).

We are also planning a panel with the current title "Data recruitment and public sharing that supports research spanning the full translational spectrum" and a hybrid poster session.
