RESEARCH

Dental Student Research Program


Research opportunities are available for this summer for up to 15 dental students and incoming dental students at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The program begins at the end of the school term (end of May) and runs for six weeks, with students presenting their work in Spring at the American Association for
Dental Research Annual meeting and the Dental School Science Symposium.

All participants are eligible to receive a stipend for the six week (determined on annual basis) fellowship working full-time during summer break. Students will perform hands-on research related to dental and craniofacial oral science in multidisciplinary areas such as: pain, biochemistry, genetics, pharmacology, immunology, wound healing, dental materials, implants, tooth movement, microbiology, oral health disparities, or molecular biology. In addition, all trainees will be required to participate in scientific seminars, workshops, and a lecture series. The amount of stipend is determined by the mentor and should be agreed upon with student prior to starting program.

Candidates will be selected by faculty mentors after an interview. Prior research experience is not necessary.

Research or program directed questions, e-mail Dr. Thomas Oates at oates@uthscsa.edu or Cuauhtemoc Garcia at garciac27@uthscsa.edu or phone number (210) 567-3167.
