Dental Student Researchers
The UTHSCSA Dental School has an active research program and each year dental students gain important experiences and enrich their study experience by participating in a variety of cutting-edge research projects with mentors from the Dental School and other collaborating departments at the health science center. Student stipends, cost for research supplies, travel to present results at meetings, and other expenditures have generously been provided by Dental School departments, research mentors, and Dental Deans Funds, and the National Institutes of Health grants. Many of the students who complete the research projects have graduated with Research Honors. Additional details can be found at our Dental Student Research Program page.
