Undergraduate Summer Research Program

The Faculty of Dentistry offers a Summer Research Program, available to undergraduate students from all Canadian dental schools. Through this program, summer students gain experience in laboratory and clinical research. Every year, several competitive travel awards are also available, which fund summer students’ travel to international research conferences.
