HONG KONG: For the first time ever, Asia played host to an Osteology Research Academy Course. Held from 3–6 June in Hong Kong, the Core Module Course received enthusiastic feedback from participants and presenters alike, the Osteology Foundation stated.

The four-day course, which was jointly organised by the foundation and the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Dentistry, brought together 33 participants from 11 different countries, including Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan and the UK. Equally international were the presenters, who came from Germany, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.

In lectures and workshops, the participants elaborated on all kinds of topics related to the field of dental and craniofacial research, including good research practice, methodology and design, as well as strategies to obtain research funding and managing research communication.

Designed for postgraduates and dentists who are more scientifically inclined, the research-focused educational courses are available as core and expert modules. So far, more than 200 young clinicians from all over the world have participated in the programme.
