One morning session was devoted to the topic "Micro- and nano-CT in endodontic research", organised by Professor Dag Ørstavik and where staff at the institute - Liebert P. Nogueira, Håvard J. Haugen, Gaute F. Johnsen and Pia Sunde presented research on dental and endodontics topics by use of micro and nanoCT.
Continental European Division (CED-IADR) together with the Scandinavian Division (NOF) of the International Association for Dental Research organized the Oral Health Research Congress in Madrid in 2019.
