Recently, second-year resident Mikhail Garibov had an opportunity to participate in the poster session at the AADR annual meeting in Los Angeles, March 16-19, 2016. Dr. Garibov’s poster “Post-translational Collagen Synthesis in Human and Murine Periodontal Ligament Tissue” was well received by the meeting attendees.
Each year during Winter Quarter the first year Perio and Prosth residents take part in a 5 week mini-course on Osseous Surgery and Flap Management, led by Dr. Herb Selipsky (Affiliate Professor and Class of ’73). There are weekly lectures and an extensive hands-on portion to the course. This is a fun series where the residents get a chance to practice and learn new techniques in a small group setting.
Thank you so much to Dr. Selipsky for his time and dedication in leading this course – it takes a lot of preparation beforehand and the department and the residents really appreciate his contribution!
