Student Research in the School of Dental Medicine

The School of Dental Medicine offers a variety of programs to get students interested and involved in research, from summer programs to dual-degree programs. Reflecting the broad interests of the faculty, research opportunities include basic, clinical, behavioral, epidemiologic, and practice-based topics for both summer research and continued participation throughout student tenure at the school. Students gain in-depth knowledge in a focused area and experience research methodologies first-hand by conducting a study from the first phases of articulating a research question to the synthesis and presentation of study findings.
