New M.S. and Ph.D. opportunities in Oral Health Research

The VCU School of Dentistry plans to offer a Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in oral health research starting in Fall 2015. The programs will train students to conduct basic and translational research in oral health with a particular focus on

  • Cancer and developmental biology of the head and neck
  • Infection and immunology
  • Bioengineering, stem cells and new materials

Research will be carried out in the Philips Institute for Oral Health Research which brings together teams of scientists from the VCU schools of dentistry, medicine and engineering to address areas of unmet need in oral health.

M.S. applicants may find this program useful for gaining entry to professional degrees or advancing their academic positions.

Ph.D. applicants will be trained in methods, techniques and critical thinking skills to become the next generation of scientific leaders in biomedical and health related research fields.
