A new Ph.D. program at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry will provide training for students who wish to pursue a research career in oral health and the biomedical sciences. The program is based in the Philips Institute for Oral Health Research, a center of research excellence focused on cancer, infection and inflammation and biomaterials. The Philips Institute has strong links with the VCU Massey Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center and one of the top 4% of cancer centers in the country; the VCU Center for Clinical and Translational Research, part of the National Institutes of Health Clinical and Translational Science Award consortium; and the VCU School of Engineering, which has a core focus on biomedical research, especially bone and cartilage biology.
The program is seeking applicants who currently hold or expect to receive a B.S., M.S. or D.D.S. degree. Visit VCU SOD’s website for more information and to apply to the program.Published on March 9, 2016.
