School of Dentistry Graduate Students Honored at UNC Graduate School Recognition Celebration

Eleven Master of Science students from the School of Dentistry were honored for exceptional contribution to research at the recent Annual UNC Graduate School Recognition Celebration. Each student received full or partial funding for his or her research project through a student-initiated application to a funding source external to the University. School of Dentistry student projects were supported by the American Association of Endodontics, American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, Southern Association of Orthodontics and Procter & Gamble.

“These students are what make us a leading research university – they are the lifeblood of the research enterprise,” remarked Dr. Steven Matson, dean of the UNC Graduate School. “The day-to-day collaboration among graduate students and faculty members is inspiring, and produces innovation that benefits our state, our nation and our world.”
