The 28th Hinman Student Research Symposium

November 10 – 12, 2023
Peabody Hotel, Memphis, Tennessee

The Hinman Student Research Symposium is a national meeting that features oral and poster presentations of research studies by dental students and graduate trainees from dental schools across North America and Canada. The program consists of a welcoming banquet with a nationally known speaker, scientific sessions with awards for best presentations, and opportunities for getting acquainted with fellow students and touring the host city. The Symposium is held at the historic Peabody Hotel in downtown Memphis, Tennessee.

To facilitate participation of students from dental schools across North America, one travel award is made to each U.S. institution to partially defray costs to attending the Symposium. Additional students from each institution and students from Canadian schools are invited to attend with travel support from their institution. A limited number of research mentors are also welcomed. Food, housing, and entertainment are provided at no cost to participants.

The goal of the Hinman Student Research Symposium is to help raise and maintain the quality of dental research and education in the U.S. by encouraging participation of dental students, graduate trainees, and dental school faculty in research to improve oral health care globally.

Aims of the symposium are to:

  • Recognize, encourage, and reward student achievements in dental research.
