Dear Colleagues,

it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 14th Tooth Morphogenesis and Differentiation conference, which will be held in the Czech Republic in 2022 in the beautiful city of Prague.

The first meeting focused on the Tooth Morphogenesis and Differentiation (TMD) was established in 1978 and it is held every three to four years at a range of sites across Europe. The meeting brings together researchers and clinicians to discuss the most recent findings in the field of tooth development and regeneration.

We aim to organize a meeting, which will follow original tradition and will provide a friendly academic platform for researchers focused on different aspects of dental research to present their latest recent findings and describe emerging technologies, and directions in this field. It is our main priority to also provide a highly interactive environment between young scientists and renowned international experts and motivate and educate early-stage researchers through this meeting.

The meeting will take place in the conference center of the Chateau Štiřín (Prague, Czech Republic), where the lecture halls, the poster, company exhibition areas and accommodation together with the restaurant and social rooms will all be located in single chateau complex providing ample possibilities for professional discussions.

Chateau Štiřín was recently renovated to unite traditional historical appearance with modern architecture and buldings belong to the Ministry of Forein Affairs of the Czech Republic.

Our conference is planned as in-person meeting. Recently, there is very low number of positive cases in Czech Republic, therefore there are no Covid-related restrictions in the city. Also, hotel will not ask for any proof of vaccination or Covid test. There is not even mandatory to wear a mask, which we hope will make our event more pleasant for everybody.

On other hand, we would like to kindly ask you if you could take home test before you are leaving for the meeting as people from many different countries are coming together and we would like to keep everybody to feel safe and enjoy the event. Thank you for understanding.

In case, there will be changes to the event restrictions, attendees will be promptly notified.
