Research is an essential part of the mission of the College of Dentistry and as such is also a part of the teaching mission for health science students. The contribution of research to advances in the knowledge base can be directly applied to patient care, and a key component of the education of NYUCD students lies in understanding how research contributes to this knowledge. Further, research as a career option is best demonstrated through the recognition of research as a prominent part of the activity of the faculty.
In addition to the integration of research endeavors in the predoctoral program, there are three research-focused academic programs at NYUCD: MS in Biomaterials, MS in Clinical Research, and MS in Oral Biology.
NYU College of Dentistry has one of the largest and most rapidly growing research programs in the country, and one of the most successful in terms of attracting federal funding. An important part of NYUCD's research strategy is translational research. We firmly believe that in today's world, groups of researchers must work together synergistically in order to move fundamental basic science research into practice. This integrated approach drives the majority of the research conducted today at the NYU College of Dentistry.
The Office of Research provides advice on grant proposals, seeks new sources of funding for research, and counsels faculty and students on research opportunities. The Office of Research oversees the review of research proposals within the college and sponsors small grants for both faculty and student research.
