Prof. YiPing Chen from Tulane University, Professor Songling Wang from Capital Medical University and Prof. Yan Jin from the School of Stomatology, the Fourth Military Medical University, generously shared their scientific research ideas, they also showed the results of their research group and the next research plans. President ZhuanBian addressed a special report entitled "Research Strategies for Oral Genetic Diseases". Researcher Hongjie Yao from Guangzhou Institutes of Biomedicine and Health, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Professor Yongsheng Zhou from Peking University School of Stomatology and Professor Xinquan Jiang from Shanghai Jiao Tong University College of Stomatology reported the latest research progress in their respective fields. Prof. Shuo Chen from the University of Texas, United States, gave a presentation entitled"Bone Morphogenetic Protein 2 Signaling in Tooth Development". Attendees benefited a lot from the professional knowledge and keen scientific thoughts of these outstanding scholars.

Doctoral students also performed well in this forum on June 28th. In addition to Wuhan University, the students from another 10 well-known colleges like Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Capital Medical University, Sichuan University, the Fourth Military Medical University, Sun Yat-sen University, Nanjing University, Nanjing Medical University and Fujian Normal University attended the forum. Doctoral students gave their wonderful speech on the stage leisurely and eloquently, to show their scientific research achievements on Craniofacial Development And the Epigenetic Control Mechanism.
