Information regarding the 2021 Summer Research Program

January 11, 2021

At this time, there is no final decision about DMD Summer Research for 2021. Because the class of 2024 will have summer pre-clinic/clinic obligations, that will affect the nature of any research program or participation. We are continuing to monitor the situation and will provide updates as they become available.

I know there are students who are interested in participating in research projects.  I would encourage you to continue that interest and be ready as more information for this program becomes available. I know this makes planning for the summer challenging.  

Please feel free to contact Dr. Demko if you have additional questions.

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. 

Getting Started

Are you a student with a great idea for research but don't know where to start? Apply for the Summer Research Program or search Research Projects to find current projects and faculty mentors. Find funding opportunities, design your research project, and submit to the IRB with help from Research Support. Then, learn how to create a Research Poster and present your research at Professionals Day or the CWRU Research ShowCASE.
