The Osteology Foundation selects a new Oral Regeneration Topic every six months. For each topic, a Webinar with an internationally renowned speaker is organised, an interview with the author of a Key Publication in this field is conducted, and a Scientific Radar is published featuring the most relevant publications on this topic.
