American Association for Dental Research – Student Research Group (AADR-SRG)


Our main purpose as the UFCD Student Research Group (SRG) is to foster an environment that encourages awareness and student involvement in dental research.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase awareness in the importance of dental research, promote more student participation in dental research and provide networking opportunities among students and faculty members.


Every year, SRG organizes at least 3-4 events with the hopes of giving students the opportunity to meet other people within the College. These events include:

  • Exceptional Lunch & Learns
  • Extracurricular Social Mixers
  • Table Clinics/Hands on Workshops
  • Supporting students conducting/presenting compelling research

Large Events

  • Members-only event learning about research in private practice.  Social with guest private practitioners and adult beverages to follow presentation.
