AADR to provide $75K for dental student in NIH research program

The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) announced that it will provide $75,000 in funding to support one competitively selected dental student's participation in the 2014-2015 National Institutes of Health (NIH) Medical Research Scholars Program (MRSP).

The program is designed to train the most promising future dentists, physicians, and veterinarians in research. Scholars accepted into the MRSP are provided with a yearlong research training experience. It is a residential program on the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD, and participants reside in one of the available MRSP housing options.

In accordance with this requirement, the selected dental student enrollee will take a year away from dental school. Fourth-year students qualify to apply and participate in the program; however, accepted fourth-year students must defer graduation before participation.

MRSP participants, paired with a dedicated advisor, work within the NIH intramural program for 12 months on a clinical research project or in a basic or translational science laboratory that matches their research interests and career goals.

The NIH is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 program until January 15, 2014. Click here for more information about the program.
