About Student Research Group

The University of Pittsburgh Student Research Group (SRG) is a student organization that encourages student interaction with research. Through fellowship, awareness and meetings, we help 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 that comprise 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 Instagram page and Linktree to connect with us and stay updated about our events!

If you are a current dental or pre-dental student, please contact Leah and Kevin with any questions.
If you are interested in graduate degree programs (Master's and PhD), feel free to contact Mahdieh, Courtney, and Yejin.
