Part of the UChicago-Brazil Collaboration in Science Lecture Series
Drs. Callum Ross and Russell Reid at the University of Chicago have spent their careers working to better understand human craniofacial biology and the treatment of related disorders. Dr. Felippe Prado at the University of Campinas has developed expertise in the identification and study of nonhuman and human models for craniofacial biomechanics. In this webinar, they will discuss the factors that led to their collaboration, the academic and clinical outcomes they have developed together, and how their careers as researchers and practitioners have benefited from international collaboration.
