School Wins Student Support Award from American Association for Dental Research

The UNC School of Dentistry received the distinction of being one of 16 dental institutions nationally to be awarded the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) Student Research Day Award. The award allows the awarded institutions to present one student with a cash award and complimentary registration to the AADR Annual Meeting.

“We thank the AADR Board of Directors for selecting the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry as the recipient of this student research award, and for their support of student researchers and our NCAADR Section member research programs,” said Dr. Eric Everett, associate dean for research. “We can be especially proud of our student researchers and their mentors. In February we will celebrate our 32nd annual Dental Research in Review Day, a reflection of remarkable and sustained research in all facets of oral health.”

The UNC School of Dentistry Dental Research in Review Day (DRRD) is held annually in February. This academic year’s event is scheduled for Wednesday, February 24, 2016. During DRRD, students presenting their research will be evaluated by faculty and peers from the Student Research Group. The most outstanding research presentation will be given the AADR award. The awardee will be highlighted in the AADR/Canadian Association for Dental Research Annual Meeting and Exhibition Program Book and in the AADR e-newsletter, the Science Advocate.
