The University of Pittsburgh Student Research Group (SRG) is a student organization that encourages students to interact with research. Through fellowship, awareness and connections with one another, the SRG helps interested students enrich their dental education through a research experience. The SRG is affiliated with the National Student Research Group, one of 20 scientific groups comprising the International and American Associations for Dental Research.
If you currently are performing a research project and seeking to enrich your experience as a dental student, we are here to help. Members of the SRG board can assist in cultivating and enriching research experiences at Pitt Dental Medicine. Please check out our website and contact your current SRG officers or faculty advisors for more information.
Opportunities are available for students in many different aspects of dental research, including craniofacial genetics, tissue regeneration, informatics, public health, and other fields.
In addition to the academic rewards and contribution to the dental profession, many students who conduct research have opportunities to share their projects and results at national meetings and conferences. These events provide an excellent experiences to learn from and network with colleagues. Students involved with research can also compete for awards, scholarships, and other opportunities at the University.
To be involved in research, students must maintain good academic standing.
