School of Dentistry

The research vision of the School of Dentistry is to ensure research training is fully integrated within the academic programs and encouraging our faculty and students to be fully engaged in research activities. The plans for developing a research infrastructure to foster and facilitate interdisciplinary research and research training are underway.

Part of the plan includes developing a Research Advisory Council (RAC) that advises the associate dean on research priorities, policies, procedures, and guides decision-making on additional resources needed. The RAC will create a strategic plan that establishes a clear, quantifiable research program with funding goals that address the needs of the School of Dentistry.
