Enamel 9 Programme and Abstracts are now available here.

Please note hard copies will be provided on arrival at the Symposium. 


A break out workshop to consider the possibility of establishing an international collaboration in AI (maybe including other inherited conditions affecting dental enamel) has been scheduled for the afternoon of Wednesday 2nd November, after lunch (see programme).

Prof Chris Inglehearn from the School of Medicine at Leeds will share his experience of working as a member of such an international collaboration in his own field of inherited retinal disease. You will also know Chris from Leeds’ publications on AI genetics. Chris’ abstract for the meeting is available here.

Enamel 9 is an almost unique opportunity for us all to be together and the large number of presentations focussing on AI and other inherited enamel defects illustrates the global research activity in this area. Attending the workshop doesn’t commit anyone to anything but it does give us the chance to consider working together in a “safe space” for mutual benefit.

Keynote Speakers

Keynote speakers for the Enamel 9 Symposium are Professors Per Ahlberg, University of Uppsala, Sweden and Ophir Klein, University of California at San Francisco, US.

Per Ahlberg: Fossils, development, genomes and family trees: a framework for reconstructing the early evolution of enamel and dentine
