Mohammad Behnaz

President, IADR Congress

With God Almighty’s help, the 16th Annual Iranian division of the IADR Congress will be held despite current complicated conditions. Today, not only our country but also the whole world is confronting the deadly Coronavirus, which has so far affected many of our compatriots and medical and dental staff. This has disrupted many things, including research, but the Iranian division of IADR considered it their responsibility to hold this research event every year. I would like to express my deep gratitude to Dr. Khoshnevisan, the head of the Iranian division of IADR, for his trust and for giving me the responsibility for organizing this year’s congress.

As the president of the 16th Iranian division of the IADR Congress, which will be held on December 24th-25th, 2020, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this virtual research congress. I offer my gratitude to the scientific and executive committee -led by Dr. Omid Moghaddas and Dr. Mohammadreza Badiee- for preparing this event in this complicated situation in a short time.

The organizers of this meeting have prepared a two-day program that will provide scientists and researchers with the opportunity to present their papers, discuss ideas, and critique their investigations. As we know, the missing link of research is its use and application of research, which connects the university and industry. In this congress, we want to focus on translational research to use these studies for progress and development.

I invite my esteemed colleagues to give us their worthwhile speeches, as always and help us continue the path to hold an eminent and glorious congress.
